Welcome!

The Christian Medical Society at Penn State College of Medicine encourages students to grow in their Christian faith and to build up Christian community in the world of medicine.

On a weekly basis, we invite a Christian physician or another community leader to lecture at lunchtime on an important issue concerning faith and medical practice.  Smaller groups gather during the week to discuss biblical and ethical issues in a more personal setting.  Students, residents, and attendings often meet for dinner or dessert on weekends.  We plan fall and spring getaways to encourage fellowship and growth among students and faculty.

We aspire to follow Jesus together while developing friendships filled with fun and accountability.  Our goal is to integrate biblical principles into our everyday lives, and in the process become compassionate and excellent caregivers.  The Christian Medical Society is open to all who are interested – medical students, graduate students, nursing students, spouses, faculty, staff, etc.
