How will I be supported while participating in CPE?

Peter Strening is the ACPE Certified Educator who will provide clinical supervision to you as you engage in your clinical ministry. The curriculum for the program has been created with the contexts of each of the clinical sites in mind, while at the same time providing resources for you to pursue your identified learning goals for ministry. There are clinical mentors at each of the three sites who will serve as resource persons and colleagues for you as you offer spiritual care. Your spiritual care resident peer group will be a place of affirmation and helpful challenge as you integrate learning and service. An interdisciplinary Professional Advisory Council (PAC) offers ongoing consultation for the Certified Educator and program participants. Each of the sponsoring institutions is strongly committed to supporting the program; the staff you work with will be your partners in providing care and your interactions with them will be an important part of your learning process.

The program offers an annual stipend of $35,000 (for the 2017-2018 program), plus health benefits at employee rates and paid time off. Columbine Health Systems serves as the employer for each of the Spiritual Care Residents. Program participants are able to take advantage of opportunities and perks available to employees at their respective clinical sites as well.
