Letter from the Regional Director
Welcome to the Southwest Region
On behalf of the members of the Southwest Region, I welcome you to our website. I hope you will find this site informative and descriptive of our work and life together. As all regions of the ACPE, we are committed to providing a high quality of clinical pastoral education and training in all of our centers, and as our logo indicates, we are a region where culture is alive and diversity is valued. Our diversity can be seen in the wide expanse of geography that stretches between our regional boundaries, from Oklahoma to the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, from the bayous of Louisiana to the mountains of New Mexico.
More importantly, our diversity is seen in the ethnicities and cultures that exist between those borders.With major medical centers, hospitals, and other ministry contexts, the Southwest Region is a rich and fertile location for clinical training. Whether you are looking for a first unit of CPE, a residency, a second year of residency, or Supervisory training, we invite you to explore our ACPE accredited centers to find the location and training site that best meets your needs.
Again, welcome to the Southwest Region.
Dr. Wayne L. Menking
