Mission, Ethics Careers

CHRISTUS works to spur student, employee interest in mission, ethics careers

About 60 percent of Catholic health care mission leaders said in a 2013 CHA survey that they planned to retire by 2022. And more than 70 percent of Catholic health care ethicists said in a 2014 CHA survey that they planned to retire by 2029.

With a majority of mission leaders and ethicists in the ministry nearing retirement within the next dozen years — and with evidence that there’s a shortage of prospective replacements in the career pipeline — CHA has been urging Catholic health systems and facilities to focus on succession planning for these positions in the near term.


No interest? Really? There are well paying careers out there for people of faith, promoting their faith in the clinical setting.
