Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Mission Leadership

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Certificate in Healthcare Mission Leadership is for associates across Catholic healthcare who wish to deepen their understanding of the theological, ethical, and practical elements of the mission and ministry of Catholic healthcare.  This certificate is designed for those interested in exploring the area of mission or who would like to deepen their expertise in Catholic identity or one or more of the Catholic Health Association (CHA) competencies and for those who wish to do "mission-in-place" to enhance the work they do in finance, patient services, clinical care and more through engagement with the foundations of Catholic healthcare.

This graduate certificate program is open to those with undergraduate or graduate degrees.  Others pursue the certificate as a point of entry into the Master of Arts (MA) program.

To complete this 15-credit hour graduate certificate, students can choose any five courses in the areas of theology, spirituality, ethics, organizational management, and leadership from the curriculum for the MA in Healthcare Mission Leadership.  This flexibility allows those who have strong backgrounds in healthcare administration to focus their coursework in the theological disciplines, while those with backgrounds in theology may, for example, choose to focus on organizational development.
