Discipleship is at the heart of everything that Medical Campus Outreach Philadelphia seeks to do!

Through regular luncheons (pandemic permitting), students and professionals are stimulated to consider medical issues from a Christian perspective.

Weekly campus studies, supported by MCO and CMDA, offer much-needed Christian fellowship and support.

CityWide Events pull students, residents, and attendings together from all the campuses in the Philadelphia area for teaching, fellowship, and worship. We hope for these to be in-person meetings but sometimes have to make this virtual.

One-on-one mentoring matches students or young professionals with seasoned providers and strong Christians for personalized discipleship and encouragement.

The Summer Medical Institute seeks to nurture students and help them integrate their faith with their medical training, allowing them to shadow Christian providers, facilitating small group Bible studies, and providing lots of time for one-on-one spiritual conversations.

So don’t try to make it on your own! Every Christian needs to be discipled and be discipling others!

Be Mentored or Become a Mentor

Medical Campus Outreach matches students with professionals for spiritual and occupational mentoring. While every mentoring relationship is different, mentors often help students or younger providers learn how to pray with patients, balance school and other commitments, love one’s family while working in healthcare, interact with other healthcare staff, and grow deeper in Christ.

If you would like to mentor or to be mentored, please fill out this form below, and we will contact you with more information.

    We normally send out 1-2 emails a month with news and updates about events that MCO is planning. Select whether or not you'd like to be added to this mailing list.

Community Housing

Starting in 2014, we were able to offer community housing for men, and a year later, for women as well. Both homes are in the Roxborough neighborhood of Philadelphia, and spots are advertised as they are available. These homes have become centers of organic Christian community – hosting their own worship nights, meeting with discipling staff members, and hosting get-togethers. We are so grateful for the men and women who live in these houses and grateful for the opportunity to offer these homes for students of healthcare professions.

Need housing starting this summer? Come and live at Medical Campus Outreach’s women’s or men’s ministry houses with other healthcare students and professionals. The houses foster community and discipleship. Rent is inexpensive, and the houses are in the Roxborough section of Philadelphia close to major highways and regional rail and bus lines. Contact Laura for the women’s house and Justin for the men’s house. Graduate healthcare students preferred, but others will be considered.
