One of our goals is to connect students and professionals with resources to help them integrate their faith and medical practice. Check out our library of recommended resources, our “speaker’s bureau” of Philadelphia-area physicians who are willing to speak at campus Bible studies, our audio and video recordings of recent events and more!

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.
