All Catholic healthcare professions are invited to join us in our mission: inspiring healthcare workers to imitate Jesus Christ. The CMA is the largest national group of Catholic physicians committed to upholding Catholic teaching in the medical profession. As a member, it challenges us to witness the unity of faith and reason in this secular and relativistic pagan culture. CMA guilds are present in more than 100 dioceses as a resource for the clergy in medical ethics and related moral issues.
