CEO Job Opening

International Christian Medical and Dental Association

 

An introduction about ICMDA

The International Christian Medical and Dental Association (ICMDA] is a global movement uniting national Christian medical and dental organisations around the world.

All began in 1963 with the ‘International Congress of Christian Physicians’, and then the movement expanded rapidly, changing its name in 1986 to the International Christian Medical and Dental Association. Today it unites around 75 national movements reaching out to Christian medical and dental students and graduates around the globe.

ICMDA seeks to encourage and equip Christian Medical and Dental Students and Graduates to grow to Christian maturity and live out their faith within their clinical practice and beyond.

Christians in medicine and dentistry take their inspiration from Christ, the Great Physician. The example of Jesus in humility washing his disciples’ feet and wiping them with the towel wrapped around his waist is reflected in our logo.

‘I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you’ reminds all Christian doctors and dentists that ‘no servant is greater than his master’ John 13:15-16
