Gift Memberships

Are you interested in giving a gift membership to a colleague, friend or family member? It’s a great way to honor the recipient while supporting CMDA and helping to grow the kingdom for the glory of the Lord. Give the gift that will change hearts in healthcare. If you would like to provide a gift membership to someone who isn’t a member, we will offer a 50% discount off their first year of membership. Simply provide us with the recipient’s information and we’ll handle the rest. For this program, credit card payments are required. Your card will NOT be charged until the gift recipient affirms our statement of faith and submits a membership application.

Group Memberships

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.
