Interfaith Professional Education for Ministry

Clinical Pastoral Education is interfaith professional education for ministry. It brings theological students, ordained clergy and qualified laypersons into supervised encounters with people in crisis. Intense involvement with patients and family members plus feedback from peers and teachers give CPE students a new awareness of themselves and those to whom they minister. The Resident CPEACPE offers students the opportunity to prepare for Board Certification as Professional Chaplains.
