The focus of St. Anthony Hospital's CPE program curriculum is threefold:
- An intensive participation in pastoral ministry to patients, patients' families and staff in the multi-cultural setting of St. Anthony with the supervision of an ACPE certified chaplain supervisor.
- Intensive collegial participation in an educational peer group.
- Engagement in a reflective learning process with individual and group supervision that assists in the development and integration of personal and professional identity, the enhancement of pastoral skills and the ability to assess the theological, psychological and social implications of one's pastoral functioning.
Pastoral Reflection, Pastoral Formation, and Pastoral Competence are the primary learning goals that guide the learning contract between the student and supervisor. Basic computer skills are a necessity, as all members of the department participate in regular data collection and entry on the computer.
