Medicine as a Christian Vocation
Summer 2018 Seminar Series
As a follower of Christ, how do you think about the profession of medicine?
Medical school can be overwhelming and can often obscure the larger more beautiful and empowering Christian vision of our calling. It is therefore worthwhile to take time to read about, reflect upon and discuss the importance of vocational calling in our faith and its implications for those of us in medicine.
This seminar series is for rising 2nd and 4th year medical students and is led by Jay Lynch, Professor and Assistant Dean for Admissions, College of Medicine at UF. Seminar meetings are Sunday nights, June 10, 17, July 8 and 15, 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. Participants in this seminar series will enjoy free meals in the home of Dr. and Mrs. Lynch and discussions around assigned readings and film while working toward the following goals together:
- Expose the artificial dichotomy between “spiritual” and “secular”
- Cultivate an understanding of every aspect of life as under the lordship of Christ and a spiritual act of worship
- Participate in honest discussion about the challenges faced in the medical field
- Develop a deeper and lasting understanding of our calling that will sustain us as we offer care for others
