Clinical Pastoral Education
Barnes-Jewish Hospital is accredited by the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education to offer level I/II and supervisory education training programs of clinical pastoral education (CPE) that may lead to professional certification as a chaplain. Locally, Barnes-Jewish is part of the St. Louis Cluster, ACPE and offers full time internships during the summer, part-time externships in the fall, winter and spring, and year-long residencies. CPE trainees are actively involved in direct patient, family and staff care during their training.
