The application process also requires an admissions interview. For the Summer and Extended programs, the interview may be conducted by any ACPE supervisor and a summary submitted as part of an application.
Interviews at our center are scheduled by our department secretary after our supervisors have reviewed the applications.
For the Chaplain Residency and Supervisory Residency, the Admissions Committee will invite applicants to visit the center, attend a seminar with the chaplain residents, and have a tour and lunch with a current Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) student. An interview with the staff supervisors would be a part of that day's visit.
For more information regarding the CPE Program at Carolinas HealthCare System, call the CMC Clinical Pastoral Education Office at 704-355-5315 or email us.
