CPE Innovation and Diversity


As WA’s first and only institution-based CPE program, we are proud to be a core component in Royal Perth Hospital’s nationally and internationally acclaimed Centre for Wellbeing and Sustainable Practice. The Centre provides care for patients, their loved ones and staff through a team of professional chaplains. Our Wellbeing Professionals and Chaplains provide one-on-one and group care for doctors, nurses, allied health clinicians and support staff, and advocate for systemic changes to enhance the wellbeing across the hospital. Research, publication and conference presentations and international collaboration are key aspects to our mission and vision. Our CPE Centre Director and CPE Educator run CPE courses in a variety of formats. This busy and dynamic environment provides our CPE students many opportunities for learning.


We strive to facilitate diverse student groups, including women and men of various ethnic and cultural backgrounds, ages, spiritual perspectives and professional affiliations. We are committed to providing equal opportunity in our admissions process without discrimination based on age, gender, race, national origin, disability, religious affiliation, sexual orientation or family situation.
