TCMDA Beliefs, Vision, and Mission
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.
We are the Triangle chapter of CMDA, serving Central North Caolina and connecting with the entire state through ministry, fellowship, encouragement and relatiuonships.
The Christian Medical & Dental Associations® (CMDA) is made up of the Christian Medical Association (CMA) and the Christian Dental Association (CDA). CMDA provides resources, networking opportunities, education and a public voice for Christian healthcare professionals and students.
Founded in 1931, CMDA provides programs and services supporting its mission to "change hearts in healthcare" with a current membership over 19,000.
