I was involved in EU (Evangelical Union) as a student so it just seemed a natural progression to Join CMDFA.  But why have I maintained my membership for over 40 years? It's not just from force of habit. The reason is encapsulated in the CMDFA motto "Following Christ, integrating faith and practice" This means we can't keep our faith in a box which is separate from our work. Our faith transforms the way we work.
That's easy to say, but not always easy to do. That's where the friendship and support of other CMDFA members, as well as CMDFA activities and resources,  has helped me over the years. I strongly recommend other Christian medical graduates to become part of this fellowship
