The Christian Medical Society at Penn State College of Medicine exists for the glory of God and the good of the student community. Our goal is to help Christian students grow in their faith together, and to make a space in our school for anyone who wants to engage with the Christian faith. Even through the complexities of medical school during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are committed to following Jesus together while developing friendships filled with fun and accountability as we integrate biblical principles into our everyday lives to become both compassionate and excellent caregivers.
CMS meets weekly online for times of Bible study, fellowship, and prayer, as well as regular testimonies and talks from professionals in healthcare. We provide opportunities for small group activities, community service, mentorship by Christian physicians, and networking with Christian groups beyond our campus.
The Christian Medical Society is open to all who are interested – medical students, physician assistant students, graduate students, nursing students, spouses, faculty, staff, etc. Even if you are a prospective student who is interested in medicine, we would love for you to join us. Our goal is to create a safe space for spiritual conversations, whether for the Christian seeking spiritual nourishment or for the nonbeliever curious how spirituality might play out in the patient or physician experience. We welcome the whole community of Penn State Hershey in the spirit of fostering respectful, enlightening discussion.
