MultiCare Good Samaritan Hospital is accredited by ACPE to offer Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE). CPE is designed for individuals who wish to improve pastoral care skills and develop pastoral identity through a deeper understanding of themselves and those they care for. It is practical learning about how to recognize and address the spiritual concerns of others.
Under the supervision of an ACPE Certified Educator, students reflect on patient encounters with a peer group to discover how their personal history, culture, social context and personal theology impact their pastoral care. In addition, students learn concepts in pastoral care and apply their learning to future encounters. This process of action-reflection has proven to be a very effective means of learning pastoral care.
CPE consists of 400 hours of supervised education. A minimum of 100 hours is dedicated to classroom time while the remaining 300 hours are allotted for patient visitation, charting, staff care and on-call duties. Our CPE program is Accredited to offer Level I and Level II CPE. Student placement is negotiated to balance institutional and student needs. Placement is available at one of three main locations:
