Mentoring as a Component of Clinical Pastoral Education

The Clinical Pastoral Education mentoring program at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center partners chaplain residents with seasoned staff chaplains serving in critical care units. Serving alongside their mentor, students share the responsibility of serving patients, family and staff on that unit. Residents benefit from receiving feedback, guidance, and support from their mentors.
