Learning to Care for the Spirit through Hospice

Clinical Pastoral Education is interfaith professional education in the field of pastoral care. It is intended for theological students and ministers of all faiths who want to learn pastoral care skills and work within a pluralistic and clinical setting. CPE offers a rich environment for learning pastoral care skills while understanding end-of-life care issues and the overall duties of a hospice chaplain.

The VITAS CPE System is accredited with the Association of Clinical Pastoral Education, Inc. headquartered at One West Court Square, Decatur, GA 30030. We are accredited to offer Level I, Level II and Supervisory training.
