Chaplaincy

The AIHT Chaplaincy program prepares the individual who wishes to serve others as a trained Chaplain in secular settings such as a hospital, hospice, home care, assisted living, skilled nursing facility, community, prison, rehabilitation center, or private chapel. A chaplain provides spiritual guidance, emotional support and palliative care in a variety of settings.

The Chaplaincy program provides a foundation that prepares the student for optional ordination and clinical pastoral education. Once the student has completed the foundation courses they are encouraged to complete one unit of clinical pastoral education (CPE). Completing this unit of training allows the individual to practice as a chaplain. Since state laws and organizational policies vary from state to state, AIHT recommends that students check with their state and local governments as well as institutional policies before providing chaplaincy services as part of their ministry.
