The mission of the Spiritual Care Department is to encourage, support and enable the integration and provision of spiritual care and well being in every aspect of The University of Vermont Medical Center activities.

A number of volunteers assist the staff in bringing Communion and visiting patients.

Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) is interfaith education for ministry. CPE develops the capacity for pastoral and spiritual care of individuals, families and staff. The heart of CPE is ministering and learning from the experience. CPE is available for those preparing for ministry, chaplaincy or wide areas of hospital ministry. Hospital staff members gain experience to know themselves more and to enhance their many skills dealing with patients and colleagues.
