Combining formal academic study with spiritual formation, mentoring, weekly seminars, church and community-based practicums, and semi-annual retreats, the fellowship equips participants to wisely and faithfully engage their vocations with respect to health and medicine.
The Fellowship is open to students and practitioners in any of the health professions, as well as to others whose vocations and aspirations involve full-time work in health-related contexts (e.g. hospital administrators, chaplains, and public health workers).
The Fellowship offers scholarship support for theological study and formation at Duke Divinity School through either a one-year or two-year fellowship track. In addition to this, we are thrilled to announce that starting in the 2019-20 academic year, we will be offering full-tuition scholarships for three Fellows who enroll in the MTS program.
The first year in each track promotes intensive integration of theological study, spiritual formation, and theological reflection on practice. The second year, if elected, promotes the further development of Fellows as scholars and teachers at the intersection of theology and health care.
