Our Vision

That God made man-spirit, soul, and body, and He has called us Christians in the Medical and Dental disciplines to be proficient in caring for the whole man (1 Thess. 5:23b). Hence, the Christian Medical and Dental Association of Nigeria seeks to establish a Christian witness through Medical and Dental doctors and students in every community in Nigeria and beyond.

Our Mission

We represent Jesus Christ in what we do, transform lives in healthcare, bring healing and hope to the world and impact our profession and culture.

We establish and enhance Christian witnessing through members’ personal and corporate ministry in holistic care, missions, leadership and service.

We support Christian doctors, dentists and students to start and strengthen CMDA Nigeria chapters nationally as platforms that enhance calling, equipping, fellowship and service.


The Christian Medical and Dental Association of Nigeria (CMDA Nigeria) is a network of Christian Medical and Dental practitioners registered with the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria and students studying for the same qualification. Founded in 1972, the association has since become a platform for nurturing medics to practice health care with a heart, and to provide leadership through various platforms in the health sector within and outside Nigeria. CMDA Nigeria provides resources, training and member support opportunities, and a public voice for Christian medical and dental practitioners and medical students, as well as other allied Christian health worker groups.
