Education

GWish is working to further integrate spirituality into the curriculum for healthcare providers. This includes medical school, primary care residency, and psychiatry residency programs. For over 11 years we have run a successful award program for curricular initiatives in spirituality and health in medical education.

Additional educational efforts include creating a summer institute to help practicing healthcare professionals provide high-quality healthcare that incorporates spirituality as part of excellent holistic care, and working with a Canadian advisory group of medical educators, ethicists and chaplains to develop a national Canadian initiative in Spirituality and Medical Education.
