Education is a vital component in sustaining excellence in chaplaincy care in varied institutional settings. Our association is committed to offering and promoting quality educational events to assure that chaplains have adequate opportunity to engage in dialogue with colleagues, and learn new skills and techniques.
Each year, our annual conference brings together hundreds of chaplains to gain insight from well known speakers and workshop leaders. Numerous other educational opportunities provide for a variety of learning styles, including APC Professional Education Webinars, Symposiums, reading informative articles in APC publications and journals, attending small local and regional events that are cosponsored by our association, or participating in a locally arranged peer-review process. In addition, you can view many other Educational Opportunities of interest to chaplains that are sponsored by hospitals, seminaries and various other community organizations across the country.
Quality education is an important step in promoting and developing chaplaincy care and professional chaplaincy as an essential part of wholistic care in varied ministry settings. Our Education Committee continues to seek innovative ways to offer continuing education for chaplains, by chaplains.
