Institutions typically require four units of CPE for the position of Staff Chaplain or equivalent professional pastoral care position.

The Clinical Setting

Seminary settings typically provide an academic environment for the study of pastoral theology. In contrast, the CPE center provides the clinical basis for learning. Peninsula Regional Medical Center is a Trauma Center and comprises over 360 inpatient beds. Peninsula Regional has also developed a strong palliative care program and works in partnership with other centers and hospitals in the region.
