Clinical Pastoral Education
as CPE, Clinical
Pastoral Education is a program
in which seminarians, clergy, and some qualified lay-people provide pastoral
care to patients
and engage in
an "action-reflection-action" model oflearning.
Each student engages in group work with peers as well as in individual supervision with an appropriately certified supervisor.
One unit of CPE is required for ordination in many faith traditions. Four units of CPE
is required in order
to seek board certification as a chaplain.
We currently have two CPE offerings:
1) An 11-week,
full-time summer unit
2) A part-time, academic
includes 300+ hours of
patient care, 100+ educational hours, occasional Sunday worship
leadership at UMCPP and PHBH,
and occasional on-call coverage (off-site). Each student will serve as the primary
chaplain on two units and
participate as part of the departmental team.
We are currently
in the planning stages for starting a CPE Residency in Fall 2016.
Our CPE program is affiliated with the Association of Clinical Pastoral
Education (www.acpe.edu) .
