Rev. Dr. Peter Yuichi Clark
Rev. Dr. Peter Yuichi Clark has been a leader in Bay Area hospital chaplaincy for more than fifteen years. After completing his doctorate, he went to Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Berkeley, California, eventually overseeing two dozen chaplains. Recently he moved to the UCSF Medical Center, one of the world’s great teaching hospitals. Chaplain Clark has been honored within and outside the medical community for his “extraordinary ability to relate to people of all ages, and how quickly he establishes rapport and trust.” He also has an unusual ability to relate to people across racial, cultural and other barriers and enjoys ecumenical and interfaith dialogue. Chaplain Clark teaches pastoral care at the San Francisco Theological Seminary and the American Baptist Seminary of the West. He writes a religious calendar for chaplains called to minister to people of all faiths, published by The Interfaith Observer each month.
