Clinical Pastoral Education
Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) is a learning program that teaches students how to provide spiritual care.
At Chabad On Call, the CPE program is accredited for Level I, Level II and Certified Educator Candidates, by the ACPE: The Standard in Spiritual Care and Education.
Chabad On Call provides students of all religious and spiritual backgrounds with a rich, well-rounded learning experience. Students in our accredited ACPE clinical pastoral education (CPE) program provide spiritual care to patients, families, and hospital staff from diverse backgrounds—and they play an important role in the healing process.
Our program offers a collaborative, interfaith, clinical learning environment in which CPE students develop their skills in pastoral reflection, formation, competence, and specialization. As a CPE student, you will learn how to provide spiritual support in a clinical setting via a multi-faith professional education program.
