Fairview’s commitment to meeting the spiritual needs of patients dates back to our founding in 1906 by a group of Lutheran churches in Minneapolis. Today, we partner with many different faith communities to fulfill unmet health needs in the areas we serve.
The Fairview Interfaith Health Collaborative works to make our communities healthier through programs like parish nurses, immunization clinics and health education.
Our experienced faculty members prepare students to work in clinical and community settings addressing the spiritual needs of parishioners, patients, their families, health care staff and community members. Students engage in ministry alongside their CPE supervisor and Fairview chaplains in individual or group consultations.
