Events

MCO will be following city, state, and federal guidelines in regards to in-person meetings. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we might alter some of the normal meetings described below in favor of a mostly remote presentation schedule. We believe that God can still work through these times to help us accomplish our goal of making disciples on Philadelphia’s healthcare campuses.

MCO’s monthly events welcome any member of the healthcare profession to learn, fellowship, and network together. This is a great time for students from the allied health professions–medicine, nursing, therapy, pharmacy, and others–to meet students from across Philadelphia. These events also provide residents, attendings, and other healthcare professionals opportunities for fellowship and mentoring relationships with students.

MCO’s Healthcare Fellowship Lunch meets on the first Sunday of every other month, usually from 12:45-2:15 PM at Tenth Presbyterian Church, Fellowship Hall West. Each month we hear from outstanding medical leaders including overseas healthcare workers, academics, Christian ministry leaders, and pastors.

On alternate months, we meet on campuses across Philadelphia for CityWide events. These usually take place in the evening on weekends and allow us to reach a broader audience and connect with students in a different setting.

Look below for our upcoming events! Make sure you follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the most up to date details and reminders!

Upcoming Events

While we are all practicing social distancing we do want to remain connected. We have started a weekly group prayer call on Google Hangouts Meet. We also know of several student groups continuing to meet regularly via mobile chat apps. If you would like any information about these or other opportunities to stay connected, please email us. 

Cultural Competence in Christian Healthcare

Sunday, November 8 at 2:00 PM

Our first planned virtual lunch conversation of the new school year will be on Sunday, November 8 at 2 PM. We will be hearing from two clinicians who have spent their careers in countries with challenging opposition to Christianity. We hope this time will be an encouragement for you to consider whether you might join in this type of work. For security purposes, the link for the meeting will be sent about 24 hours prior to the event to all who register.

Sickness, Sin, or the Supernatural?

Friday, December 4

Join us for a panel discussion to talk about the overlap of the physical, spiritual, and possibly demonic as they relate to human health. More details will be coming in the next few weeks.
