Fellowship of Christian Physician Assistants

Imagine having an entire army of peers to whom you could turn for advice, ideas and support, from a Biblical, Christian perspective. By joining CMDA, and as a member of the PA section, you will become part of a network of fellow Christian PAs, students, residents, doctors and other healthcare professionals who all face similar professional and personal challenges as you. 

CMDA currently has 45 ministries functioning under their banner to about 18,000 members. There are over 350 student and graduate groups in 194 cities across the country. Global Health Outreach (GHO), the missions arm of CMDA, sends out over 50 mission teams a year around the globe.

Your support allows CMDA to promote positions and address policies on healthcare issues; conduct overseas medical evangelism projects; coordinate a network of Christian healthcare professionals for fellowship and professional growth; sponsor student ministries in the related healthcare schools; distribute educational and inspirational resources; host marriage and family conferences; provide Third World missionary healthcare professionals with continuing education resources; and conduct academic exchange programs overseas. 

You will receive the PA section email newsletter, which is now quarterly but we plan to increase the frequency. Additionally, CMDA has print and electronic resources such as a quarterly journal and monthly podcasts; employment placement services and advertising; access to various CMDA ministries such as marriage retreats; opportunities to develop connections with fellow local members for mentoring and ministry resources; and other items of interest, especially regarding bioethical and moral issues.

FCPA has appreciated the support of its members for over 30 years and as we continue to grow in new directions, we pray that you will grow with us. We live in extraordinary times and coming together as witnesses to His Name has never been more critical.

Missions: Reaching the lost for Christ

FCPA has had a longstanding interest and support for international missions. Many of our members have extensive experience in short-term mission work. What a privilege to carry the gospel message to the least, the last and the lost of our world while meeting their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. "Inasmuch as you did it unto the least of these, you did it unto me" (Matt 25:40)

One significant source of access for this is Global Health Outreach, which is the missions arm of the Christian Medical & Dental Associations. Click here to find team opportunities.
