    Can anyone offer guidance regarding the inclusion of Clinical Pastoral Services education as community benefit?? Specifically, providing in-house internships for students…

    First confirm with your reimbursement department that Clinical Pastoral Services education is not part of the dollar amount included in Health Professions Education (HPE). HPE generally includes Graduate Medical Education (GME), Indirect Medical Education (IME) and Allied Health. Pastoral Care or Clinical Pastoral Services Education is included under Allied Health for two of our three System hospitals.

    If it is included, you could include the number of students in the entry and if you wanted to highlight special features of the program this may be done in the Leadership Journal.

    If it is not included, you can work with pastoral care to collect the number of students, overview of the program and enter the information on the academic cycle under B3 – Other Health Professions Education. Hope that helps answer your questions.

    We count clinical pastoral internships as directed by CHA’s Guide page 102. It allows these students hours to be counted under “Health Professions Education.” Our pastoral staff allow for 20% of their time when supervising interns unless they are doing direct teaching in the form of presentations or lectures at which point all of their time is counted. Feel free to call me should you have any other questions about this issue.
