Clinical Pastoral Education Program
Pastoral Services and Education sponsors Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) programs year-round. Our CPE programs are accredited by the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education (ACPE). The Chaplain Residents and Interns who participate in the CPE program provide pastoral care to patients, families and staff, and participate in individual, group and didactic educational experiences. The Residents and Interns consist of seminary students of different denominations, clergy active in parish, congregation and chaplaincy, and lay persons who active in ministry in a variety of contexts.
The Chaplain Residents and Interns have primary responsibility for on-call coverage of the hospital on evenings and weekends. They have the support of the Chaplains, who are available to provide information and resources.
Rev. Mark Bradley and Chaplain Peter Strening are certified as CPE supervisors by the ACPE, and direct the CPE programs. Rev. Michael Washington and Chaplain Matthew Jacobson are Supervisory Education students. The rest of the staff of Pastoral Services & Education serves as faculty as well.
