About the job
Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) is an interfaith, professional education program, which consists of supervised hands-on practice, classroom training, and participation in a small peer group. CPE is a transformational model of learning that helps students develop greater self-awareness as a spiritual caregiver, build spiritual care skills, and gain new knowledge in preparation for ministry.
From June 6, 2022 – Aug 19, 2022 participate in a full- time summer course with 100 hours of classroom education and 300 hours of spiritual care practice in one of our three PIH Health hospitals. CPE interns complete these hours primarily during the week. PIH Health Whittier requires some weekend coverage. None of our hospitals require overnight on call.
Interns are not required to visit COVID+ patients. All interns will be trained on how to properly wear PPE in the hospital.
