Paging future doctors! The Catholic Medical Association exists to form and support current and future physicians to live and promote the principles of the Catholic Faith in the science and practice of medicine.

Join pre-medical students from across the country in taking the CMA’s new L.O.V.E. pledge – a rule of life specifically designed to help you grow in holiness as a pre-health student! This pledge was developed out of advice from medical students, residents, and attending physicians who spoke at FOCUS’s SEEK21 conference in a session titled: “Catholic Healthcare: A Vocation to L.O.V.E.” You can watch the breakout session here and learn more about these CMA members’ advice for living a “Lifestyle of Virtuous Excellence (L.O.V.E.)” as a pre-medical student today! You can download the pledge using the images below, perfectly sized for use as your phone screensaver.

Are you a FOCUS missionary who wants more information about connecting your pre-health sciences students to faithful, zealous medical students near your campus? Email us at [email protected] to learn more about ways our network of medical students and residents might be able to help you with on-campus outreach to high-achieving college students! 

We’re excited to invite you to MedCon21: a FREE two day conference April 9-10, 2021, designed specifically for pre-medical students to learn to discuss hot-button Catholic bioethics issues with faculty and peers! Benedictine students are invited to attend in-person, on campus at Benedictine University. All others are welcome to attend via Live Stream! Please find a registration link here…registration will close March 19th, 2021!
