The Pastoral Care Department at St. V’s also serves as a training site for theological education. Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) was begun in 1925 as a form of theological education that takes place not exclusively in academic classrooms, but also in clinical settings where ministry is being practiced. CPE is offered in many kinds of settings. Hospitals and health care is just one of the many options.
After serving as a clinical site for CPE students for a number of years, St. Vincent has moved to offering a full-time summer CPE unit on it's campus, as well as a winter or spring internships, and year-long residency programs. Click here for more information about St. V's CPE program.
