MD Breakfast/Retreat

On Saturday morning, September 23

medical students and community physicians will be converging on Rochester from the Western NY region to kick off our first Upstate MCCF Retreat with a stimulating day of feasting, fellowship, and education. The day will start at 8:00 am with our Fall Christian Physicians Breakfast where Dr. Daniel Fountain, MD, MPH, will begin the first in a series of 5 informative and discussion-provoking sessions on the provocative topic:

“What’s wrong with US health care and how can we fix it?”


  • 8:00 Registration and Breakfast (note early start)
  • 9:00 Problems with the biomedical model and the US health care system
  • 10:00 Restoring wholeness to medicine from both scientific and biblical perspectives
  • 11:00 Wholistic approaches to common psychosocial problems
  • Noon: Lunch, Medical Student Gathering, and Discussion
  • 1:30 How to do a personal and spiritual assessment
  • 2:30 The logistics of forming a care giving team
  • 3:30 Retreat ends

The Retreat will be hosted at The Meliora (Faculty Club) on the University of Rochester River Campus and includes lunch. We’ll be wrapping up by mid-afternoon on Saturday to allow those participating to return to their full lives without undue interruption.

Physicians will be eligible to receive up to 5 hours of Category I CME credit for their participation in the Saturday sessions. This promises to be a wonderful time of spiritual nurture and growth and will be an ideal opportunity to welcome medical students to a regional fellowship of faith.

Cost? $50 for practicing providers and $25 for students for all sessions and meals. 5 CME credits are available for an additional $50 fee. You’re warmly encouraged to participate in as many of the retreat events as your schedule will allow, so please mark your calendars and sign up now!
