Many healthcare organizations expect that chaplains and chaplain managers will include ethics expertise among their competencies. The Fairbanks Fellowship in Clinical Ethics combined with a second year Clinical Pastoral Education Residency at Indiana University Health provides extraordinary competency in clinical ethics along with core competency in organizational ethics and theological ethical reflection.
Expectations of persons accepted into this program will include providing chaplaincy services as a CPE resident, completing program requirements of three units of CPE, and completing the Ethics Fellowship requirements. It is expected that that the Fellowship requirements will be integrated into the CPE requirements so that an integrated experience in ethics, pastoral ministry, and theological ethical reflection is achieved.
Requirements for entry into this joint program are: completion of M.Div. or equivalent, completion of 4 units of Clinical Pastoral Education, successful application to the Fairbanks Center for Medical Ethics for the Fellowship in Clinical Ethics, successful application to the IU Health Clinical Pastoral Education Program for second year residency.
Steven Ivy, M.Div., Ph.D., Senior Vice President for Values, Ethics, Social Responsibility and Pastoral Services at Indiana University Health is the mentor for this program.
