Welcome to the CMDA Singles

We have designed this site with you in mind, the single medical/dental professional, and trust you find practical and appealing information. 

Our purpose for the CMDA singles ministry is provide you the opportunity to accomplish the intent God has for you, in medicine or dentistry, and in your personal life. 

Summer Conference
Our History
Winter Conference



Those who have stepped out and taken advantage of our singles ministry over the past 20 years will testify that this group includes some of their closest friends - often joining each other in various activities and trips between CMDA events. 

The event speakers' purpose is to challenge, equip and encourage you. Mission trips provide you the opportunity to serve along side other single health care professionals. In short, everything we do is planned with you in mind, to educate, equip and challenge you in your personal and professional lives. 



 "I look forward to meeting you on the slopes, in the clinic or at Starbucks. Send one of us an email or give us a call."

--Michael J. McLaughlin, M.Div., Singles Advisor


Our Mission Statement

Our purpose is to connect Christian single healthcare professionals on the local, regional and national levels for: 

  1. Spiritual development and support
  2. Evangelism and other ministry activities
  3. Interpersonal growth
  4. Shared recreation, fellowship and social connection
  5. Integration of faith and practice.

In order to do this, we plan four yearly events: we plan get togethers at the national meeting in the summer, collaborate together on a short-term mission trip, meet at our annual winter conference, and plan one warm-weather conference usually in the Fall. We invite your suggestions for future events and hope that you will join us and find friendships among our “singles family” within CMDA.
