St Camillus Center for Spiritual Care: Urban Interfaith Chaplaincy Program
LA General Medical Center
The mission of Urban Interfaith Chaplaincy (UIC) Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) is dedicated to caring for persons in spirit, mind, and body by providing compassionate, sensitive and competent ministry to the patients, residents, staff, and families of community service organizations.
We provide experience-based theological education for seminarians, clergy and lay persons of diverse cultures, ethnic groups and faith traditions by building innovative partnerships in order to pursue a vision of greater service to the communities surrounding Los Angeles, California.
Such partnerships are developed through contracts with community service organizations such as but not limited to: hospitals, hospices, retirement centers, nursing homes, prisons, corporations, businesses and parishes.
UIC offers CPE Levels I and II (Summer full-time intensives, or Fall and Winter/Spring extended units).
This ACPE-accredited program does not discriminate against persons because of race, ethnicity, religious/spiritual tradition, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, disability, etc.
