It has also developed a Postgraduate Certificate in Healthcare Chaplaincy “to provide professional education in spiritual and religious care for existing chaplains and those seeking to enter the profession.”

The University’s Medical School states: “Spiritual care features in the standards, capabilities and competencies frameworks of all healthcare disciplines. It is often described as being integral to healthcare practice.”

Their courses will develop knowledge, skills and competence in spiritual care:

  • Providing spiritual and religious care in healthcare
  • Professional practice in spiritual and religious care in healthcare
