The Transforming Chaplaincy Management Certificate is a direct response to the professional needs and wishes of chaplains and patient experience leaders in healthcare settings across the country. One-on-one patient service is only half of the chaplain’s overall work experience; the other half is how the chaplain fits into the interdisciplinary medical team and the administrative structure of the system.
Transforming Chaplaincy will launch the inaugural cohort of the Management Certificate in September 2019. Featuring nationally-recognized leaders in patient experience and spiritual care administration, the program begins and ends with three-day conferences hosted by Rush University in Chicago, with regular online gatherings in the interim. Participants who complete the course will receive a Spiritual Care Management Certificate, widely recognized by healthcare administrators as a guarantee of excellence not only in interpersonal effectiveness but also ability to manage spiritual care services within complex healthcare systems.
