Course Reviews

I believe in refining my chaplaincy skills and the Hospice Chaplaincy program was what I needed. I have learned a lot and recommend it to all my friends who are pursuing chaplaincy work in the hospice context. Maria

Excellent platform and fantastic courses. I was able to take my time, studied at my own pace and completed the courses.  Perfect! Josh

Thank you I learned a lot, Robyn

Thank you so much. Wonderful classes. Immensely helpful. Diane

Thank you, Hospice Chaplaincy! You have renewed my passion for bedside ministry and my dream of becoming a hospice chaplain. Ann

I work as a hospice chaplain and been doing that for 2 years. I did this course for two reasons, for professional development but also because my hospice was paying for it. Dr. Ebema was fantastic, interesting, and helpful. I plan to take any other courses you will provide! Susan

I completely enjoyed the course thank you very much, Terri

Thank you so much. Hope to do more classes in the future. Heidi

    I work as a chaplain at a Hospice Hospital in Jamaica in the Caribbean. I am a volunteer as Chaplains are not paid in the Jamaica Health care system. I am requesting a scholarship to do to do this certificate. Our patients and families would benefit greatly from my training. Thanks.
    I am currently lobbying the government to put chaplaincy programs in the health care system. They are interested but they have no budget as yet for spiritual care.

    What are the prerequisites for this course? I have no medical, psychology or theology background, but find myself called to work as an end-of-doula. I have volunteered with a local, non-profit for more than a year, have been trained as an EOLD, and intend to have a private practice as EOLD. (I am on a powerful, nondenominational spiritual path.) Thank you.
