Clinical Pastoral Education

UK HealthCare is accredited by the Association of Clinical Pastoral Education to run Level I and II CPE programs. We currently offer extended 15-week Fall and Spring internships and an intensive 11-week intern program in the Summer.  We also have a year-long CPE Residency program. 

While we are not actively running a Certified Educator Candidate program, we are accredited for CEC CPE.

As a teaching hospital, UK offers the opportunity for seminary students and clergy of all faiths to continue to learn how to provide pastoral care in a hospital setting.
