ICMDA Bursary Fund - 16th World Congress


The bursary fund has traditionally come into action in the year prior to the four-yearly ICMDA World Congress.

The purpose of the fund has now been expanded to potentially fund overseas recipients to attend training activities in Australia such as CMDFA Impact, Vision and Graduates conferences.

ICMDA Travelling Bursary Fund  is to enable students and doctors from less-resourced countries to attend the ICMDA World Congress 16th in Hyderabad, India in August 2018




It is a great pleasure to invite you to the XVIth World Congress of ICMDA to be held in Hyderabad, India in August 2018. The theme of the Congress is “In the footsteps of the Great Servant Healer”, from Isaiah 42:5-7. The theme was chosen with the understanding that in the changing global context, the ICMDA family should have renewed understanding of our Master and His mandate and follow His footsteps. 

The Congress aims to promote obedience because of the Covenant, obedience leading to leading the lost and ultimately disciple. Hence the tagline – Repent, Reprove, Restore. 

It will also be an opportunity for delegates to meet, have fellowship, develop international links and build friendship beyond the congress. 

Leonia International Centre for Exhibitions and Conventions is the venue for ICMDA World Congress -2018 and is part of the Leonia Holistic Resorts, a sprawling serene estate which combines leisure, business, recreation, rejuvenation, and relaxation all in one place. It is a sensational space where you can multi-task and switch modes between work, fun, learning and relaxing at the same time and in the same campus. 

Hyderabad, the city of Pearls is the capital of the new state of Telangana. It is the fifth largest city in India and has several tourist attractions such as Golconda Fort, Charminar, Salar Jung Museum, Quli Qutub Shahi Tombs, Chowmahalla Palace, Birla Temple, Ramoji Film City etc. The weather at the time of the ICMDA-2018 World Congress is expected to be very pleasant. 

On behalf of the National Organizing Committee of ICMDA-2018, I invite you all for a time of fellowship and renewal. 

I look forward to seeing you all in Hyderabad, India.

Yours truly,

Dr. Bimal Charles 
Chair, National Organising Committee - World Congress 2018 
General Secretary, Christian Medical Association of India
