Types of CPE Programs

There are three types of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) Programs offered at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, including:

Part-Time CPE Program

The part-time program offers a flexible schedule for those seeking to learn more about chaplaincy in a hospital and to develop pastoral skills. Typically four to six students are accepted into this program, which lasts for six months. The groups meet weekly for lectures, discussion and student presentations. Each student is responsible for on-call coverage of the hospital and for eight hours of visitation each week. The hours of visitation can be negotiated so that students may integrate this program into their regular work schedule. This program is recommended for persons with ministry experience who are unable to leave their current employment for a full-time residency, and who have an expressed interest in chaplaincy and pastoral skill development.

Pre-requisites include:

  • Graduation from an accredited college
  • A completed application form and fee
  • An interview with a qualified interviewer
  • Eligibility to be a volunteer at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center

Students are expected to provide ministry at the Medical Center through on-call coverage and regular patient care assignment. The Summer Intensive is the program of choice for seminarians seeking to complete their CPE requirements. Typically five to seven students are accepted into this 40+hour/week program. Group and supervisory times will occur throughout the week.

Pre-requisites include:

  • Graduation from an accredited college
  • A completed application form and fee

Community CPE

The part-time program structure is for the Chaplain Intern to participate in a minimum of 300 hours of service during the CPE unit. This would occur over the nine month period in a regular weekly assignment. The unit also includes a minimum 100 hours of education during this time period. The education program is primarily focused on case study in a peer group setting facilitated by a CPE Supervisor.

This part-time program offers a flexible schedule for those seeking to learn more about spiritual care in a community and medical center partnership. Typically six to eight students are accepted into this program, which lasts for nine months. The groups meet weekly for lectures, discussion and student presentations. Each student will have some pastoral care responsibility in the medical center and a community ministry assignment each week. The hours of visitation can be negotiated so that students may integrate this program into their regular work schedules. This program is recommended for persons with ministry experience who are unable to leave their current employment for a full-time residency or CPE unit, and who have an expressed interest in community and medical partnership as well as pastoral skill development.

Pre-requisites include:

  • Graduation from an accredited college
  • A completed application form and fee
  • An interview with a qualified interviewer
