Clinical Pastoral Education Curriculum

The UAMS Clinical Pastoral Training programs follow the standards set by the CPSP, the accrediting organization. A typical unit of CPE requires a minimum of 400 hours of supervised ministry in a clinical setting.

Chaplains in training are assigned to at least one area of pastoral responsibility for clinical pastoral work. Pastoral placement is negotiated with each trainee. Evening, weekend, and overnight assignments may be assigned, depending on the clinical requirements of each unit.
