Clinical Pastoral EducationClinical Pastoral Education


Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) is an interfaith professional theological education for ministry utilizing the clinical method of learning. The focus of the CPE program at UNC REX Healthcare is on pastoral reflection, pastoral formation and pastoral competence.

Students in CPE develop a new awareness of themselves as persons and pastors, of the needs of those with whom they minister and of the systems in which they give and receive care. From theological reflection on specific human conditions, they gain a new understanding of ministry. Within the interdisciplinary team process of helping people, they develop skills in inter-personal and inter-professional relationships.
