Spend a few days focusing your vision and soaking up wisdom from the CCHF Community!
We love welcoming students at our annual conference!
CCHF has established a student scholarship fund to assist medical students with conference and travel expenses. Student scholarship recipients volunteer 4-6 hours during the conference and are a huge help to the CCHF staff. Volunteering is a perfect opportunity to meet new friends, network with fellow students and the CCHF community, and to be refreshed and envisioned.
The student scholarship fund is deep, but not limitless! Apply early to ensure that you get a spot.
The conference has many workshops relevant to your life as a student. Check out these workshops - many more found at our resources tabs.

Insight from student scholarship recipients on their experiences at the CCHF conference:
Thank you and all the generous clinics so so much for letting me come to the CCHF conference. It was hands down the most God-filled, inspiring, and encouraging experience of this year thus far. Through my work, I meet many excellent physicians who, like me, are passionate about HIV and HCV work among inner city folk. The difference between them and the CCHF providers is that these providers are sold out for a greater Kingdom than publications, awards, and patient gratitude. The amount of Christ-like joy, sacrifice, love, and dedication to spiritual healing that CCHF doctors have just blows my mind and thrills my heart. I am more than ever convinced that, as a future doctor, I must bring Jesus into each interaction with patients and colleagues and into each examining room.
“I met three other people affiliated with the medical school that I will be attending, and that was very helpful and encouraging for me. I also received a lot of advice regarding different questions I had about starting medical school from others. The most helpful was meeting the other students and the faculty member from my school.”
- “I love the time spent with other students, hearing their stories and encouraging each other to run hard for Jesus during these years as we prepare for the future.”
