Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) is continuing education for ministry with the emphasis on learning from your experience.  In the weekly seminars, with individual supervision and peer consultation, you will be able to focus on your own particular learning needs, and provide valuable feedback to others also committed to adult learning.

The summer CPE program will take place June 6 – August 19, 2011.
Schedule: Mondays – Fridays, 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM with a weekly on-call shift.


  • Free parking
  • Free meal passes

You will receive credit for one unit (400 hours) of CPE upon completion of this learning experience. You will meet and learn with a group of peers and will provide spiritual care each week at Indiana University Health Bloomington Hospital. Also, you will have opportunities to experience on-call shifts during the unit.

We offer a variety of pastoral settings including:  critical care, cardiovascular, oncology, medical-surgical, acute rehab, behavioral health, in-patient and home hospice, and a variety of other in-patient and out-patient services.
