Catholic Physicians' Guild of Chicago is a constituent guild of the 6000
member strong Catholic Medical Association (formerly, the National
Federation of Catholic Physicians' Guilds). Members are dedicated to
the "Service of God and man". This goal is accomplished through prayer,
serious examination of moral issues and camaraderie among guild
members. Quarterly plenary dinner meetings feature distinguished
speakers that address important moral issues.
The Catholic Physicians' Guild of Chicago also sponsors the Catholic Medical Students' Association of Chicago and publishes a newsletter to
instruct medical students and residents in the area of Catholic Medical
Ethics. The guild offers Catholic medical students in the Chicago area
many opportunities to mature as student-physicians from a uniquely
Catholic perspective in the art of medicine. The Guilds' mentor program
allows students to become well acquainted with a physician in their
area of interest. Monthly journal club meetings also enable practicing
Catholic physicians and medical students an opportunity to interact and
discuss morally relevant issues.
The Illinois Catholic Medical Association
Illinois Catholic Medical Association is a professional association of
Catholic doctors in Illinois, united by faith, and interested in the
ethical practice of medicine. At present there are four regional guilds
in Illinois: Chicago, Joliet, Peoria, and Springfield. All Catholic
physicians, dentists, and medical students are welcome to join.
Catholic Physicians of the United States and Canada, we come together
in the Catholic Medical Association in order to grow in the spirit of
Christ in our personal and professional lives, to bring His Spirit to
all that is touched by our science and art, and to assist the Vicar of
Christ, the Bishops, and the whole Christian community with leadership,
especially with the particular knowledge, skill, and experience we have
as Christian Physicians.
