The Christian Medical Fellowship (CMF) exists to unite and equip Christian medical, nursing and midwifery students to live and speak for Jesus Christ.
I'm Rachel, and on behalf of the student team at CMF - welcome to uni!
You've just begun a lifelong journey. In the next few years, you'll learn thousands of new words, meet more people than you could ever imagine, and sit countless exams. You'll share some of the happiest and saddest times in patients' lives.
Some issues are much more specific to the Christian medical, nursing or midwifery student.
How do you respond to lecturers who argue against belief in God?
What do you do if asked to watch, or help with, an abortion?
What do you say if a patient asks to pray with you?
CMF can help with these questions and many more as the above video (soon to be updated) outlines.
It's take...and give
But there is a far bigger reason to join than just what we can offer - CMF needs you!
By being a member, you have the opportunity to give to others, e.g. by being a point of contact, leading a group, going on a summer team, organising an evangelistic event and the list goes on...
Your subscriptions and gifts help pay for the work of CMF. You could access many of our resources for free as a non-member of course, but we are dependent on Christian medics, nurses and midwives making a decision to support the work.
You know what's happening, so you are better able to pray for that work.
You encourage other medical, nursing and midwifery students, showing that we are not individuals but are united and can have confidence that we are part of something bigger than ourselves. Cheesy though it may sound, we are stronger together.
You add strength to our voice as we speak out in the public square.
So take a look at our resources and join with us in uniting and supporting Christian medical, nursing and midwifery students where you are today.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
