Programs and Dates
Level I Full-time Summer Unit will not be offered in 2021.
We offer a full-time eleven-week intense summer unit. In addition to the 8:30 am – 5 pm schedule, students also partake in the on-call rotation. The program offers an introduction to spiritual care in the hospital environment. It focuses on self-awareness in the clinical setting and peer group setting in preparation for further ministry in faith communities as well as the medical setting.
Level I Part-time Extended Unit will not be offered in the 2021-2022 academic year.
Our Intern Program, part-time during the academic year, enables clergy, seminarians, or qualified lay persons to engage in spiritual care education while maintaining a limited schedule of school or work. We work with students to schedule patient care hours that fit their schedule as well as the patients’ needs. Class time is four to five hours per week, with eight hours of clinical work per week, and two overnight on-call shifts per month.
Level II Full-time Residency WILL be offered in the 2021-2022 CPE year.
Our year-long Residency Program enables CPE students to earn three units of CPE at a manageable pace, while receiving a stipend and employee benefits. The program allows students to prepare for professional chaplaincy certification and/or chaplaincy positions, or congregational work while working full-time (with overnight and weekend on-call shifts) as a CPE student/ resident chaplain.
Our Certified Educator Education Program prepares a student to become an ACPE Certified Educator. Our current position is already filled.
