Are you a Medical Student or Resident looking to deepen your understanding of how your Catholic Faith can guide you in your personal and professional journey as a Physician? Do you wonder how to respond to the challenges extended by your colleagues when the subject of the sanctity of human life is broached?
If so, perhaps we should ship you off to Boot Camp! No, we are not referring to a months long endless program of pushups and 10 mile long runs wearing a 40 pound backpack. We are referring to a one week long program sponsored by the Catholic Medical Association.
The goals are to assist Catholic medical students to:
- More fully live and understand the Catholic faith and moral tradition in order to thrive as faithful Catholic physicians.
- Develop skills to help organize Catholic support groups within medical schools and residency programs.
- Evangelize Catholics and non-Catholics encountered throughout medical training.
The 2018 Boot Camp is scheduled for June 18-24 in Mundelein, Illinois. The Finger Lakes Guild will be proud to sponsor a Medical Student or Resident, so there will be no cost to attend.
