建立香港基督徒醫生及牙醫團契的信念, 始於 1975 當一群醫生和醫學生參加第五屆國際基督徒醫生會議,他們受感於新加坡醫護團隊有強大團契網絡,及有效力的見證分享。 回港後他們開始籌備並建立以香港為基地的基督徒團契的工作,他們更彼此分享異像及於 1976 年 5 月組成臨時執委會。經過 4 個月的準備工作,第一屆會員大會於 9月份舉行及團契也正式成立。當時,我們名為香港基督徒醫學團契,直至 1988年,我們更名為香港基督徒醫生及牙醫團契,時至今天。

What is CMDF?


It represents a group of people who believe in the same Christian doctrine and work in the same medical profession. Yet far more than that, we share the same faith, the same hope and the same love which leads to the same vision and mission in our service of medicine.

 

History of CMDF of Hong Kong

The idea of establishing a local Christian Medical and Dental Fellowship was started in 1975 when a group of doctors and medical students attended the 5th International Congress of Christian Physicians. They were amazed by the strong fellowship and the effective witness of the Singapore medical group. They acquired the calling of forming a Fellowship in Hong Kong. Their vision was shared with many others resulting in the formation of the Interim Executive Committee in May 1976. After 5 months of preparatory work, the 1st Annual General Meeting was held in September when the Fellowship was officially found. At that time, it was called Christian Medical Fellowship (CMF). In 1988, it was renamed as The Christian Medical and Dental Fellowship of Hong Kong till now.

 

The Fellowship Functions

Monthly gathering at FES office with invited Pastors in delivering message to our Fellows. Evangelical meetings - CMDF has held an evangelical musical event "能醫不自醫" with the cooperation of AHKHCCM. CMDF has also held different evangelical dinner meetings with various respectful Christian brothers and sisters such as Dr. Chan Sau Chee (a well-known dermatologist ) shared his life journey and evangelical faith before his death from inoperable cancer; Dr. Bianca Ip Chan Suk Suk (a famous female cardiothoracic surgeon) visited Hong Kong twice in sharing her struggle between the profession and family problem with her children and Mr. Christopher Yuan, son of a dentist, is a drug abuser and sexual identity problem being terminated from dental school and sentenced to prison. Because of the love and continuous prayer from his parent, he is being moved and later studying theology after conversion to Christian and released from prison in USA etc.

 

Special talks and lectures

CMDF has held evangelism training program in three different systems –

1) METS - Medical Evangelism Training Strategy

2) International Christian Medical and Dental Association (ICMDA) - International Saline

3) Alice Ho Miu Ling Nethersole Hospital Chaplaincy - CPE brief training of Clinical Pastoral Education

 

Partnership with Hong Kong Nursing Christian Fellowship (NCF)

CMDF has partnered with NCF to hold yearly function "Medical Outreach Conference" in the past years with different topics such as Evangelism to Muslims, workplace ministry, opportunity for short term medical mission trips, preparation for long term medical ministry etc. This yearly function serves as witness of unity with other medical colleagues to serve God with our profession in the form of worship and conference.

 

Contact with medical students of the 2 medical schools

The Fellowship invites representative from each medical school sitting in the Ex-co meeting. We provide support in their local activities e.g. bible study group, orientation of new comers, graduation process etc. A retreat camp "Walk, Wrestle and Work with God" is arranged at end of each year which is conjoined by HKU and CU medical students which provide opportunity for reflection and planning of our life.

CMDF has a scheme to sponsor and encourage medical students to join short term medical mission trips arranged by different mission organizations in order to equip them with a heart for mission and broaden their vision for cross cultural evangelism. They are encouraged to share their experience in the corresponding fellowship.

 

Promotion of the Hospital Chaplaincy program

Medical Benefit Scheme for Christian Pastoral Staff - CMDF cooperate with the Association of Hong Kong Hospital Christian Chaplaincy Ministry (AHKHCCM) in providing high quality specialist medical care for our pastoral staffs and their spouse at a reasonable, reduced and affordable cost from a group of Christian doctors. This serves as holistic ministry of providing an effective medical care for pastors so that they can minister with a good physical and psychological health.
