Piedmont Fayette Hospital offers graduate level pastoral care training known as clinical pastoral education (CPE) for community members and clergy interested in learning more about spiritual care.
As part of the program, students of all faiths minister to people in intimate and sometimes critical situations while being supervised. Over the course of five months, the CPE students will engage with patients in a variety of settings including hospitals, prisons and hospice facilities.
The CPE program is offered twice a year at both Piedmont Fayette Hospital and Piedmont Henry Hospital.
