Naval Medical Center Portsmouth (NMCP), in conjunction with Hampton Veterans Affairs Medical Center (HVAMC) and Naval Medical Forces Atlantic (MEDLANT), conduct the annual Pastoral Care Residency (PCR) program. The PCR program is a jointly sponsored clinical pastoral education (CPE) training program between Navy Medicine and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
“The design of the program is to provide the best standards of care and outcome-oriented strategies to those we serve,” said Lt. Cmdr. Diego Londono, the PCR director. “Navy chaplains completing the program earn four units of CPE and are eligible to apply for board certification in chaplaincy.”
