Your card will NOT be charged until the gift recipient affirms our statement of faith and submits a membership application.

Group Membership

Group memberships are designed with practices in mind as individual practices with five or more members are eligible. There are great benefits to having a group membership, and you can also offer CMDA membership as a practice benefit to your associates.

Any practice with five or more qualifying staff members who wish to join CMDA or are current members qualifies for this discount. A qualifying staff member is defined as a degreed healthcare professional, associate health, resident or graduate practicing doctor.

Everyone has the same renewal date.
Multiple memberships are paid with one single invoice that is sent to a designated contact person, saving both your practice and your associates the trouble of dealing with individual invoices.
And best of all…you will receive a 25% discount off each membership rate!
You experience the satisfaction of providing funding for long-term, life-changing ministries.
