Five Students Complete Winter/spring Unit of Clinical Pastoral Education at Northeast Georgia Medical Center

Published: Monday, May 19, 2014

Five chaplain intern students recently completed the Winter/Spring Extended Unit of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) at Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC):  Lacey Bowcock, Denise Gibson, David Keister, Tim Morgan and Sister Regis Nwosu.

These five students have been involved in pastoral care classes since January and served as chaplains in several clinical areas throughout NGMC including the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, cardiology, heart failure, stroke, pediatrics, our medical and surgical floors and the Emergency Department.

Clinical Pastoral Education is an experientially based educational learning model for those who want to explore their gifts of pastoral care in an institutional setting.  It involves readings, classroom instruction, written assignments, group interaction, individual and group supervision and serving as a chaplain at the Medical Center.

Northeast Georgia Medical Center’s Clinical Pastoral Education Program is accredited through The Association for Clinical Pastoral Education, Inc.  We are accepting applications for the Fall Extended CPE Unit.  If you would like more information, please contact Chaplain Brenda Green at 770-219-3511 or
