Healthcare Services and Programs
The heart of OhioHealth's clinical pastoral education (CPE) is ministry with people and learning through reflection, discussion and the evaluation of those encounters. Our action-reflection model of education addresses topics such as:
- personal and professional identity formation
- pastoral theology
- behavioral science
- pastoral reflection
- spiritual assessment
- systems theory
- cross-cultural and interfaith issues
- individual learning goals
OhioHealth CPE offers all three levels: Level I, Level II and Supervisory CPE.
Which OhioHealth CPE Program Is Right for Me?
OhioHealth offers a 30-week extended intern program, beginning in October. This is for students enrolled in a theological school or seminary who are looking for practical experience. We also offer an 11-week summer intensive internship program beginning in June.
Our year-long residency program, beginning in September, offers an opportunity to earn credits for three units of CPE. This residency program provides excellent preparation for a professional career as a hospital chaplain.
Supervisory Resident Fellowship
A full-time, three-and-a-half-year supervisory program is open to one candidate who has completed at least two units of Level II CPE and is interested in supervising CPE students.
