The Institute for Clinical Pastoral Training (ICPT) is a multi-faith chaplaincy educational community. We strive to expand interdisciplinary educational opportunities while promoting effective communication and collaboration amongst spiritual care providers in healthcare, prison, military, police, fire, and religious organizations.

The Institute for Clinical Pastoral Training (ICPT) endeavors to maintain and demonstrate the highest level of effective professional formation in various ministry environments. Our mission is to emphasize professional growth in ministry and protect the dignity of our trainees and those they encounter in ministry service. ICPT offers Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) to a wide range of individuals with differing religious beliefs and traditions. It is intentional that we treat each student trainee with respect and acceptance in the context of their own religious traditions.
