Colorado Psychology Internship Consortium Seeking New Site Members
The APA accredited Colorado Psychology Internship Consortium (CO-PIC) is seeking to add two new sites to the consortium by the end of 2021. The aim of CO-PIC is to prepare and retain psychologists to provide high quality, culturally competent behavioral health care for Coloradans of all ages. Currently, CO-PIC comprises three member sites across the state of CO: STRIDE Community Health Center (Denver Metro area); Bright Future Foundation (Avon, CO); and Eagle Valley Behavioral Health (Avon, CO). While the three training sites have different mission statements, each emphasizes the provision of quality care to populations in need. Additionally, all three member agencies serve rural and/or traditionally underserved populations and as such, the consortium seeks to add sites that serve these unique populations. CO-PIC’s internship program helps further the mission of each of its member agencies by allowing each agency to provide no-cost/low-cost behavioral health services to the communities they serve. CO-PIC and all its member agencies value diversity and believe diversity enhances the training experience and training environment.
Each CO-PIC member site provides opportunities for interns to train in a setting that functions primarily as a service provider. All interns are required to work a minimum of 40 hours per week and complete a total of 2000 hours to successfully complete the internship program. The collaboration of CO-PIC member sites is based upon a shared aim that emphasizes the provision of quality, culturally competent therapeutic services for Coloradans of all ages.
Interested in becoming a CO-PIC APA accredited internship site?
Well, you’re in luck! CO-PIC is currently accepting applications from interested sites.
