As we hear of opportunities that may be of interest to Christian scholars, we often share them at the ESN blog as a public service. Duke Divinity School shared this scholarship opportunity with us recently.
The Theology, Medicine, and Culture Initiative at Duke Divinity School is accepting applications for The Theology, Medicine, and Culture (TMC) Fellowship with a priority deadline of January 15, 2019. The Fellowship is a graduate program that provides in-depth Christian theological formation for those with vocations to any of the healthcare professions. We have both one-year and two-year tracks, with the latter completing a Masters in Theological Studies degree. All Fellows receive >50% tuition support, and we now have a limited number of full tuition scholarships for those completing the MTS. Students can learn more at: https://tmc.divinity.duke.edu/programs/fellowship/
One of our fellows, Tyler Crouch, describes his experience:
“The TMC Fellowship has been a breath of fresh air in the midst of my medical training. There is no doubt in my mind that the TMC Fellowship is equipping me to re-engage my medical training as a physician more capable of offering a kind of presence that is faithful to the task that Christ has given to his church to care for the ill and suffering.” –Tyler Crouch, third-year medical student, UT Southwestern
