Certificate in Theology, Medicine, and Culture
The Certificate in Theology, Medicine, and Culture prepares students to engage theologically with contemporary practices in medicine and healthcare. Students in any residential degree program (M.Div., M.T.S., M.A.C.S., Th.M., Th.D.) can pursue the certificate, and it is designed for students preparing for an array of vocations, including:
- Pastors who want preparation to faithfully visit the sick and to help the sick faithfully make use of modern medicine
- Chaplains who hope to faithfully negotiate the labyrinth of religious and medical authorities that they will face daily
- Social workers who want a deeper theological framework for their embodied service in hospitals and other non-profit agencies
- Academics who wish to pursue further work in theological bioethics, practical theology, theological anthropology, and other disciplines
- Health care practitioners who wish to understand their vocations and how they engage their patients within a theological context
