By | CPE and Chaplaincy | No Comments

The Clinical Pastoral Education program at Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center currently offers Level 1 and Level 2 CPE through Spring/Fall Extended Units and Summer Intensive Units. We offer a Residency Program from which the student receives four units of CPE. We also offer a second year Residency/ Fellowship program as well.

The Office of Academic Affiliations, in collaboration with Veterans Health Administration Mental Health Services, is motivated to expand opportunities in The Department of Veterans Affairs to train cross-discipline to expand service in the area of mental health. Our second year residency/fellowship positions focus on integrating chaplaincy, psychology, and social work at our medical center into an inter-collaborative training experience.

We are currently accepting applications for these positions. The second year residency/ fellowship positions focus on developing new clinical and educational skills and strengthening existing ones. An individualized learning plan is co-created with the fellow and supervisor to help the student further progress in their particular areas of interest. These areas could include teaching, individual counseling, group work, and/or research.

This position includes a stipend and benefits.

Sojourn Chaplaincy at San Francisco General Hospital

By | Agencies, CPE and Chaplaincy | No Comments

Sojourn Chaplaincy at San Francisco General Hospital
SOJOURN CHAPLAINCY is a multi-faith chaplaincy and spiritual care program at SFGH that was originally formed
and developed in 1982 when the Episcopal Diocese of California partnered with SFGH to establish an HIV/AIDS
ministry for hospital and outpatient patients. Since that time, Sojourn has practiced the mission described in its name:
“to stay with for a time.” Chaplains bring compassion and understanding to patients, loved ones and staff at the
hospital; where a nonjudgmental presence characterized by active listening is a gift in an environment where stressful
situations and circumstances are all too common. Chaplains sit without an agenda, listening to the needs of the
patients, observing the changing needs of the hospital environment and bringing their unique skills to witness, name
and create space for hope, health and healing.

Central to Sojourn is the belief that each person is remarkable and unique and deserving of compassion and
understanding. We believe the ultimate test of any society is how it treats its poor and oppressed members; and
Sojourn ministers to some of society’s most marginalized patients at San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma
Center (SFGH), a comprehensive medical center and the sole provider of trauma and emergency psychiatric services
for the City and County of San Francisco. SFGH serves over 107,000 patients per year; is one of the nation’s top
academic medical centers and San Francisco’s public hospital. SFGH compassionately and respectfully provides quality
health care and trauma services to patients that include some of the most socially and economically oppressed,
marginalized, vulnerable and at risk. SFGH staff members are skilled in providing resources for physical, mental and
emotional health and Sojourn provides a critical element of the circle of care by attending to the spiritual needs of
patients, families and staff.

Learning opportunities at Sojourn are primarily clinical as the focus of this internship is 1-1 interaction with patients,
families and staff. Each cohort of students journeys together during the semester and we learn through an action/
reflection model of learning. Interns work closely with Spiritual Care staff to develop learning goals that are tailored
to students wishing to complete their field education or do an internship or advanced field education placement in a
chaplaincy setting. Interns work closely with on-site mentors who offer regular feedback and support. Students
develop a learning covenant and work on specific learning goals, which often include goals related to leadership
development, community-building, and teaching or educational opportunities. This placement requires a 12 hour a
week minimum commitment.

Car Required: No

Stipend: $0

Volunteer and Internship Opportunities – Sojourn Chaplaincy, SF General Hospital

San Francisco General Hospital is a unique environment in which to learn: a busy county hospital providing medical services regardless of economic status. Many of the patients we serve are socially and economically marginalized, homeless, suffer from mental illness or substance abuse, or are victims of trauma or violence.

Current Education Programs
The Sojourn Training and Internship Education Programs introduce students to the work of hospital chaplaincy and assist them in developing spiritual care competencies. The programs include the following methods of learning: didactic seminars; reading & writing assignments; Peer Reflection Group, clinical coverage (direct patient care), group supervisory/reflection sessions, and individual supervision.
Sojourn is affiliated with seminaries of the Graduate Theological Union (and is in the process of developing relationships with other seminaries) for Field Education placements. Field Ed Internships are tailored to students wishing to complete their field education or do an internship or advanced field education placement in a chaplaincy setting.  Interns work closely with on-site mentors who offer regular feedback and support. Students develop a learning covenant and work on specific learning goals, which often include goals related to leadership development, community-building, and teaching or educational opportunities
