Whole Person Care Preceptorship
June 13 - July 15, 2020
Elective rotation credit may be available!
At the 20th annual Whole Person Care Preceptorship (WPCP) held in Southern California, you will receive professional training to ethically and sensitively assess and address the spiritual needs of your patients. In a variety of specialties and settings (inner-city clinics, University teaching hospital, private clinics, HMO, etc) you’ll work with and learn from seasoned Christian physicians and dentists who regularly integrate their faith into their patient. Plus, you will have ample opportunity to do the same with real patients in both clinical and hospital situations. Most importantly, you will grow and reconnect with God as you become better prepared to lead colleagues spiritually. Enjoy protected time for personal devotionals and learn from experts in the fields of personal ministry, bioethics, apologetics and theology. As you serve and enjoy the incredible attractions of California, you’ll live in community as you build lasting relationships and return to school rejuvenated and refreshed.
