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.

shluchim testimonials

“I had the great fortune of receiving two units of CPE through Chabad on Call. The insights and skills transmitted in the course have endowed me with greater skills in fulfilling my shlichus, in the medical community and beyond.” - Rabbi Boruch Wolf, Chabad at the Medical Centers

“The CPE unit was challenging, but well worth the time and effort. It transformed the way I handle visits to those in the hospital.

If helping people in spiritual or emotional distress is a significant part of your shlichus, I strongly recommend taking a unit of CPE.”

- Rabbi Shlomie Deren, Chabad of the Hospitals, Pittsburgh, PA
