(Clinical Pastoral Education)

Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) is a unique interfaith experience, open to people of all faith backgrounds. We offer CPE to spiritual professionals and theological students seeking professional growth and development in clinical pastoral settings. CPE students learn through action-reflection instructional methods and supervised practice in real-world settings to provide pastoral services to persons in crisis.
Students have the option of taking 100% of each training unit via interactive distance learning (IDL) or via hybrid learning which blends both on-site and interactive distance learning modules.
