Programs and schedules


Our program options and 2016-2017 sessions

Fairview's Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) Center offers three program levels—Level I, Level II and Supervisory CPE. Here are descriptions of each followed by a schedule of upcoming sessions. Most of our students take CPE as part of their graduate level theological education to prepare them for parish ministry or for professional chaplaincy.

CPE Level I
Level I addresses basic competencies and pastoral issues related to reflection, formation, identity and functioning in one or more units of CPE. A CPE student must meet Level I CPE outcomes, as documented in the supervisor's evaluation, as a prerequisite for acceptance in Level II CPE.

CPE Level II
Level II CPE addresses advanced competencies and pastoral issues of function, reflection and integration in a program of at least two units of CPE. Level I must be completed in one or more authorized CPE center(s).

Supervisory CPE
Supervisory CPE addresses the competencies and issues within the art of supervision, educating qualified persons in the theory and practice of supervision of clinical pastoral education. Students in this program need to have achieved the Level II outcomes.
