The Christian Medical Society (CMS) at UMB is a local chapter of a national organization, CMDA, which meets every other week for fellowship, prayer and discussion. CMS is committed to providing Christian fellowship and support for medical professionals, encouraging Christians to mature in their faith, challenging them to integrate their medical careers into their lives in Christ and providing an environment in which non-Christians can explore the claims of Christ. CMS presents meetings on Bible study, short-term missions, ethics, Christian family life within the medical profession and evangelism. Dinner is shared every month. Members also have the opportunity to participate in local, regional and national conferences and serve the local community. All students, faculty and hospital personnel are welcome.
