Resources

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 MCO Healthcare Fellowship lunch discussions, and more!

Campus Leaders Only Resources

MCO keeps a list of Philadelphia-area physicians and healthcare providers who are willing to speak at campus Bible studies or special retreats. We also support campus Bible studies in many other ways. Bible study leaders may access all these features under the password-protected page linked here. To receive the password please contact us.
