Bayhealth Accepting CPE Applications

Thursday, February 8, 2024 |
Bayhealth is now accepting applications for its Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) Program’s spring semester, which will run from March 20 through Sept. 13, 2024.

Bayhealth’s CPE Program, which is accredited by the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education Inc., is professional training for clergy and lay persons of all faiths and denominations.

The program helps these individuals best serve as spiritual care providers not only to patients, families, and staff in hospitals and other healthcare facilities, but to the military and others in the community — such as to those in places of worship, schools, prisons, and homeless shelters. It also prepares chaplains for board certification.

The training takes place at Bayhealth’s Kent and Sussex campuses. Students will gain firsthand experience offering spiritual care to patients and their loved ones in a variety of specialties including oncology, cardiology, pediatrics, palliative care, orthopedics, intensive care, labor and delivery, and emergency and trauma care.

Visit Bayhealth.org/Healthcare-Professionals/Clinical-Pastoral-Education to learn more about the program and to download the application.
