Christian Medical & Dental Associations® Membership FAQ

CMDA Statement of Faith

STATEMENT OF FAITH While each of us holds fast to additional beliefs important to our relationship with God, the following statement outlines the tenets that provide a foundation for our fellowship and participation in the Christian Medical & Dental Associations. I believe:

  • In the divine inspiration and final authority of the Bible as the Word of God;
  • In the eternal God revealed in Holy Scripture as Father, Son and Holy Spirit;
  • In the unique Deity of Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, whose death and resurrection provide by grace through faith the only means of my salvation;
  • In the transforming presence and power of the Holy Spirit.

Who is eligible for membership?

All Christian healthcare professionals and students pursuing a career in healthcare are welcome to join CMDA, including physicians, dentists, physician assistants, nurses, physical therapists, PhDs in academic programs, etc. Associate members receive the same benefits as other members, with the exception of the right to vote or hold office.

What are the dues associated with being a member?

We offer various levels of membership dues based on your individual status. We try to structure membership dues to accommodate all healthcare professionals who would like to be members. So we can mold and shape your membership to fit your needs. (See our Membership Dues page).

Are the annual dues tax-deductible?

Yes, the annual dues for CMDA are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

If I join in the middle of the year, will my dues pay for one full year or just through the end of December?

Your dues will pay for one full year and you will receive an invoice on the anniversary of your membership each year going forward. For example, if you join in June 2018, you will be invoiced again in June 2019.

My spouse is also a healthcare professional. Is there a discount for spouse members?

We place a great deal of value on the importance of healthcare marriages; therefore, we offer FREE membership to one spouse when the other pays full dues in their category. (Highest paying category of membership must be paid while the lower cost membership will be extended at no cost).

What are the benefits of being a member?

Being a member of CMDA has lots of great benefits, but the greatest benefit of all is helping to further His kingdom as we change hearts in healthcare. Learn more about membership benefits.

Do I have to be a member in order to attend a CMDA conference?

No, you are not required to be a member to attend a CMDA conference. However, our members receive a significant discount on the registration fees for most of our conferences.

Do I have to be a member to participate in short-term mission trips?

No, membership is not required for participants on our short-term mission trips with Global Health Outreach and Medical Education International. However, we do encourage team members to join CMDA. Some teams offer opportunities for a diverse group of people, such as logistic assistants, translators, worship leaders, etc., who play a crucial role in short-term teams. Those not in healthcare specialties can join CMDA under the "Friends and Spouses" category.
