The Society of Saints Cosmas & Damian (SSCD) exists to provide support and community to Christian, particularly Catholic, medical students at Vanderbilt, so that they may grow in their faith throughout the course of their medical training. To accomplish this, we aim to connect students with one another and with Catholic physicians, both locally and nationally, through a strong relationship with the wider Catholic Medical Association.
Through small group discussions, lectures, worship, and informal gatherings, we hope to address the physical, emotional, moral and spiritual challenges of medical practice and strengthen one another through religious formation and community.
