Christian doctors and nurses are on the frontlines serving people in need. Driven by our faith, we welcome and care for everyone, especially the underserved. We care for homeless and migrant communities, prisoners living with HIV, and victims of gang violence, sex trafficking, opioid addiction and deadly epidemics. But our service is threatened by lawsuits brought in New York, Washington and California, which challenge commonsense conscience protections for healthcare professionals of faith. Religious healthcare professionals of all religions must be free to continue providing compassionate care without being forced to perform procedures, such as abortions, that would require them to violate their most deeply held beliefs.

The Dr. John Patrick Bioethics Column: How do we push back on the hubris of secularism?

By John Patrick, MD | June 21, 2021

You have never seen and will never see a multi-cultural patient. Every patient inhabits a cultural story of meaning, even though they are often unaware of this fact. The blue-collar neighborhood where I grew up lived by Judeo-Christian ethics. Though almost no one went to church, they did send their children to Sunday school as a kind of visceral acknowledgement of needing something more. Many of you remember when a blue-collar argument on morals would end when someone said, ā€œThe Bible saysā€¦.ā€ That doesnā€™t happen anymore, and that is the triumph of secular power.

Making CMDA Better: Lessons from Basic Life Support

By Mike Chupp, MD | June 1, 2020

I still remember the first time I donned a whitecoat (one of those half-length coats for students) with a stethoscope in my pocket and walked into a patient room at the big city hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1985. I was a second-year medical student at Indiana University, and I had just received instruction from my clinical instructor on how to perform a thorough history and physical. I donā€™t remember my first patientā€™s name, but she was a young woman with a loud systolic heart murmur even I could hear. I also remember three words that were to guide me through each step of a thorough physical exam: ā€œLook, listen and feel.ā€ A couple of years later, those three words became critical again as I took my first basic life support (BLS) course and became certified both in BLS and Advanced cardiac life support (ACLS), prior to becoming a surgical resident. Again, the phrase, ā€œLook, listen and feel,ā€ was the guiding mantra to get my first BLS certification card.

Artificial Intelligence and the Christian Physician

By William P. Cheshire, Jr., MD | June 1, 2020

To speak of artificial intelligence (AI) conjures dazzling images of an electronically reconfigured future managed, if not dominated, by calculating, thinking, autonomous machines. Realistically, AI has the potential to deliver numerous useful benefits to medical practice, especially as progress in medical science and healthcare delivery rely increasingly on digital technologies to store and analyze huge data sets. The health information in the human genome and the scientific content of medical journals, for example, exceed the capacity of the human brain to recall, interpret or keep up with exponential advances. AI promises to bridge that gap. Proponents are calling AI the fourth technological revolution following the neolithic transition to agriculture, the industrial revolution utilizing mechanized production and new sources of power, and the digital revolution based on computer processing of digital information.

Physician as Employee: Is This What I Signed Up For?

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | September 1, 2008

Healthcare has changed dramatically over the past fifty years. Theories abound as to the various causes and their effects ā€“ with managed care, the Generation X work ethic, and increased numbers of women in medicine being three commonly cited reasons for the decline of the traditional ā€œfamily docā€ who made house-calls and whose work hours were 24/7 as needed and the steep increase in the ā€œphysician shift workerā€ who figuratively clocks in and out and leaves his pager behind when he is off duty. Managed care brought financial pressures to bear on physicians in solo practice. Generation X brought a tide of newly graduated physicians whose definition of balance was quite different from that of their parentsā€™ generation.

Few professions have the myriad of obstacles facing a vibrant marriage that a medical career brings. At the same time, medicine is a vocation with great potential benefitsā€”both to the couple and the lives they touchā€”as God works through their union. How crucial it is for us to focus on helping each other be all God has intended for us to be as individuals and as a couple.

CPR in the Times of COVID-19

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is universally applied in cardiac standstill, unless a physician order is given to Do Not Resuscitate (DNR). CPR is the only procedure that can be performed without a physician order; a nurse cannot give aspirin, start an IV or feed a patient without an order. However, CPR is the automatic default when the heart stops. This universal application has created several ethical issues, and the current pandemic now has us questioning if CPR should be the automatic default.

I attended my first CMDA National Convention in April 2012 and heard devotional speaker Luis Palau make this statement: ā€œBig doors open on small hinges.ā€ He explained how seemingly small events in our lives may serve to open big doors that God intends for us to walk through in order to enjoy incredible blessings that follow. A small hinge in my life was a letter Dr. David Stevens wrote to me after I had served at Tenwek Hospital in Kenya in early 1988 for two months during my fourth year of medical school.

Vaccines and Conscience Protection

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | March 2, 2021

It has been over a year since the first diagnosis of COVID-19 in the United States. Due to this pandemic’s effects, our society has experienced limitations in personal freedoms to a level we have never known. Social interactions and work environments have been changed by social distancing, masks, hospital and nursing home visitation restrictions and working from home. Freedom of movement about our communities and the nation has been limited by “stay-at-home orders” and mass travel restrictions. The availability of vaccines provides a sliver of hope but also raises many questions. Issues our society must address include prioritizing equitable vaccine distribution and the potential for coercive mandates on vaccine use.

On the Side: June 2021

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | June 3, 2021

The snowstorm out my window made a rainbow of white as we towed our 23-foot travel trailer down the mountain pass. We hoped all would stay in order: truck first, trailer second. Ironically, in those white-knuckle moments, I was telling my medical man what the Lord had been teaching me recentlyā€”to hold loosely.

The ā€œParent Resource Guideā€ for the Trans Movement

By AndrĆØ Van Mol, MD | October 24, 2019

The ā€œParent Resource Guide: Responding to the Transgender Issueā€ is a just-released project of the Minnesota Family Council available gratis at www.GenderResourceGuide.com. Print copies can be purchased as well.
It is endorsed by organizations right (Heritage Foundation and Family Policy Alliance), center (Kelsey Coalition and Parents of ROGD Kids) and left (Womenā€™s Liberation Front). Their stated common concerns are the ā€œnegative consequences that result when society regards bodily sex as irrelevant,ā€ and the belief that ā€œpublic schools should never feel pressured to force boys and girls to sacrifice their bodily privacy, promote unscientific theories about human biology, or celebrate ideas that place young children on a path to chemical sterilization or cosmetic ā€˜gender confirmationā€™ surgery.ā€ I was honored to be one of many who were invited to help shape its content.

But God: Finding the Silver Lining

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | June 21, 2021

I remember early on hearing in the news about a virus causing problems in China. It wasnā€™t long before we heard news of it spreading. As it began to spread, we were busy planning for March, our busiest month of mission trips. We send the most teams in the month of March, which gives mission opportunities for various schools during the annual spring break period. We sent our first two teams out before countries began closing their borders. While these two teams were still out of the country, we began cancelling our remaining trips. First it was for the month, then it became two and on through the summer. Before we knew it, we had cancelled every single remaining mission trip scheduled throughout the remainder of 2020ā€”all as a result of COVID-19.

Sustaining Our Joy in Practice

By Autumn Dawn Galbreath, MD, MBA | September 21, 2017

My eldest child left for college this fall, having chosen to attend school in Scotland. Yes, thatā€™s right. Scotland. Itā€™s a long way away. Itā€™s also a place I had never previously visited. We went on a family trip to Scotland in Marchā€”partly to visit the school he now attends, and partly to have one last bang-up family vacation before we became a family that no longer lives under one roof. On that trip, we had not one, but two, flat tires on our rental car. A consequence of our struggles driving on the left side of the road, perhaps?

Call for all Elective Abortions to be Suspended

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | March 23, 2020

As representatives of over 30,000 physicians who practice according to the Hippocratic Oath, the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG), the American College of Pediatricians, Christian Medical & Dental Associations, the Catholic Medical Association, and the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons decry the call to continue elective abortion during the COVID-19 pandemic made by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and others which falsely characterize elective abortion as essential healthcare.

Group letter to Alex M. Azar II, Secretary, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | January 9, 2020

As you know, several U.S. jurisdictions have passed legislation giving doctors immunity from civil and criminal liability for assisting the suicide of persons diagnosed with terminal disabilities. Tragically, in these jurisdictions and for this class of persons, and for them alone, suicides are now facilitated by physicians, usually with no psychological assessment or other medical treatment, typically with no consultation with family and loved ones, and in every case without the interventions and protections provided as a matter of course to all other suicidal persons.

Community Safety and Health Amendment Act of 2019

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | November 19, 2019

As members of the Commission on Human Trafficking of the Christian Medical Association, we are writing to protest the attempt to decriminalize commercial sex with the “Community Safety and Health Amendment Act of 2019”. This attempt to decriminalize the degradation of mostly women and girls in commercial sex as well as the sex buyer is morally and ethically wrong.

Seeing the Big Picture of Bioethics

By John Patrick, MD | March 15, 2021

I like history, and so I donā€™t like bioethics. Why? Because I consider it to be a deceptive word used to make people feel good when they should be afraid. And because it took medical ethics out of its privileged position of being solely concerned with the only creature made in the image of God and secularized it.

Growth Spurt

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | December 8, 2020

Sometimes reality is far more awe-inspiring than anything even the most imaginative of writers could dream up. Decades ago, the idea that a woman could become pregnant with her adopted child seemed like science fiction. However, reproductive medicine has long since crossed biological boundaries in ways that once seemed impossible, creating complex problems that require morally sound, technology-driven solutions. Since 2003, the Knoxville, Tennessee-based National Embryo Donation Center (NEDC) has been the national leader for one such solution: embryo donation/embryo adoption (ED/EA). The NEDC specializes in honoring life in its very earliest stages and facilitating pregnancies for women who want to carry their adopted children. And these days, the ministry is busier than ever, adding new initiatives and team members to expand the quality and scope of its life-affirming work.

Living the Word

By Patricia "Trish" Burgess, MD | January 10, 2019

Iā€™ve heard people say, ā€œThe Scripture jumped off the page at me.ā€ Or Iā€™ve heard them say, ā€œIā€™ve read that before, but this time it just ā€˜spokeā€™ to me.ā€ Indeed, I have had the same experience as well. God often speaks to us through a phase in life or a particular circumstance along with His Word. And then sometimes we see the Bible come to life right before our very eyes!

Feed My Sheep

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | December 8, 2020

As Christians in healthcare, we are called to take our faith into the workplace, whether it be in a clinic, in a hospital or in academia. My journey in medicine led me from the clinic into academia. I actually consider myself an accidental academician who never meant to end up in charge of training a portion of the physician assistant workforce. This, however, is exactly why I am writing this story, to encourage my colleagues and help them understand who the sheep are, why they need feeding, how to feed them and when to stop feeding them.

How to De-stress in Your Distress

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | February 21, 2022

I picked up the phone to return a call from a message I had received on my office voicemail earlier that day. The call was from a doctor. I called the doctor back and said, ā€œHello, this is Pastor Bert from CMDA returning your phone call, how can I help you?ā€ After a pause, he responded, ā€œThank you for calling me back; I donā€™t know how much longer I can continue to practice in this environment.ā€ As he continued to download the heavy burden he was carrying, I realized the doctor on the other end of the call was in distress. It was a 911 call for spiritual help. Unfortunately, that phone call is becoming all too common and frequent in my office.

Christ with Us: Practicing Christ-like Presence in an Age of Burnout

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | January 5, 2022

One week into a rotation in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU), I found myself dreaming about the hospital. I was not dreaming about saying the wrong thing on rounds, but I was dreaming about our patients: Mr. Brownā€™s wife when sheā€™d been told he may not survive his third surgery this admission; Mr. Thomasā€™s mom crying because she felt responsible for how heā€™d ā€œturned out.ā€ I told an attending I trusted that I was distressed by how much I was carrying patientsā€™ stories with me, and she graciously admitted to me sheā€™d struggled with the same thing early on in training. The solution, she said, is to not get so attached. ā€œThatā€™s how you burn out,ā€ she said.

After Ebola: Confronting the Trauma

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | April 22, 2020

In the closing months of 1989, a brutal civil war erupted in Liberia and soon engulfed the small West African country. At the time, T. Abraham Browne was in high school, and the senseless killings forced him and his siblings to flee for their lives to escape the bloodshed. They reached a refugee camp where Abraham would spend the next 10 years.
