Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) Program

CPE is interfaith pastoral education that utilizes an experience/reflection model of learning. Baptist Health offers CPE for theological students, clergy, graduate students and selected laypersons. Through encounters with persons in crisis and in-depth feedback from peers and supervisors, students grow in self-awareness, social and cultural awareness and spiritual care skills. CPE prepares students for greater emotional intelligence for future work as clergy, chaplains and faith-based leaders.
