Education and Training
Chaplaincy Services provides a number of training programs, including:
- Supervised Ministry: a course where seminarians complete supervised clinical work at Children’s National.
- Pastoral Ministry in the Pediatric Clinical Care Environment: a program focused on religious professionals to deepen their understanding and skill in providing care to families.
- Undergraduate Semester in Hospital Ministry: a program co-sponsored by the Catholic University of America.
Staff members also are trained in the role of the professional chaplain, religious/spiritual screening and assessment and other topics. One of our goals is to expand training opportunities to varied populations within the geographic area and across the nation.
