CMDA’s Midwest Student Winter Retreat will be held in St. Louis on January 13-14, 2012. This retreat is especially for students in Illinois and Missouri. Registration Deadline: Wednesday, January 11th. For full details, see the retreat brochure.
Topic: The Christian Health Professional
The professions of medicine and dentistry require specialized knowledge and an intensive time of preparation. Beyond technical expertise, training also is a socialization process designed to mold behavior to adopt certain modes of expression, dress, personal priorities, and lifestyle considered acceptable to other members of the profession. In this regard, no other profession is more intense than medicine or dentistry. How should a Christian prepare for success as a Christian doctor? The scriptures offer examples of men and women called to professional service in a secular environment. Through their stories God has something to say to us about becoming a successful professional in the 21st century.
We hope you will join us during the Martin Luther King weekend as our speaker, Michael Miller, MD introduces us to with three Bible characters who demonstrate God’s principles of professional success. They will teach us how to prepare, face the challenges, start strong, and “run with endurance the race set before us.”
Michael J. Miller, MD is Professor of Surgery and Chairman of the Department of Plastic Surgery at The Ohio State University. After completing residency at Ohio State and Tulane University, he served on the faculty of the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center for nearly 17 years and held appointments in the Departments of Biomedical Engineering at Rice University and The University of Texas. His clinical practice involves reconstructive microsurgery for patients deformed by cancer. His research interests are related to tissue regeneration and to applications of advanced technology in clinical surgery. He has served in short term missions around the world and as a Bible teacher and speaker on topics pertaining to the integration of Christian faith and medical practice.
