This consortium was created to bring high-quality psychology internship training to the state of Idaho.

COVID-19 UPDATE:

ID-PIC faculty are acutely aware of the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic and related necessary precautions are having on interns here in Idaho, as well as on the internship application and interview process.

We want to make you aware that we have implemented a number of changes at all of the sites across ID-PIC, prioritizing intern, staff and faculty safety but also optimizing the internship training quality and experience. We all hope that these changes will be temporary, but we want you to be aware of what we are doing now to ensure intern safety and both training continuity. We encourage you to check back to the website frequently for updates on pandemic issues.

APPLICATION & INTERVIEW PROCEDURES FOR THE 2021-2022 cohort:

  • We have traditionally required virtual interviews, and consistent with APPIC recommendations, we will continue to hold all interviews remotely/virtually. In-person interviews will not be taking place, even for applicants who reside nearby.

INTERNSHIP HOURS:

  • Traditionally, ID-PIC has been a 2000-hour internship. For the coming year, this requirement remains the same to ensure interns’ eligibility to become licensed following internship.
  • ID-PIC is maintaining the requirement that 25% of interns’ hours are face to face service provision, consistent with APA and APPIC requirements.

ID-PIC TRAINING AND SERVICE DELIVERY FORMATS:

  • Interns are able to video-access group training activities such as group supervision and didactic seminars.
  • Interns and faculty are able to video-access into other meetings regularly, whenever available, and currently meetings are only taking place virtually. This may include treatment planning meetings, staff meetings, and others.
  • Idaho has approved the use of telehealth for individual intervention and assessment tasks.
  • Interns are allowed to telework as appropriate and approved by their agency.

Mission

The Idaho Psychology Internship Consortium’s (ID-PIC) mission is to prepare and retain health service psychologists to provide culturally competent collaborative health care for Idaho’s diverse population. The Idaho Psychology Internship Consortium (ID-PIC) represents the collaborative effort of multiple Idaho agencies to share resources and faculty for the purpose of providing a diversified educational program for doctoral psychology interns. The consortium is designed to provide generalist training to prepare interns to meet the unique challenges of practicing psychology in rural Idaho and to ensure clinical competency in working with Idaho’s various cultural groups.

General Information

The Idaho Psychology Internship Consortium (ID-PIC) represents the collaborative effort of five Idaho agencies to share resources and faculty for the purpose of providing a diversified educational program for psychology doctoral interns. Please note that ID-PIC is a psychology doctoral internship program and not a practicum training site.

Accreditation

The Idaho Psychology Internship Consortium (ID-PIC) is an APPIC member and participates in APPIC Match process. ID-PIC is currently un-accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA). ID-PIC has submitted a Self-Study to APA in May, 2020, although there is no guarantee that an accreditation will ultimately be granted. The State of Idaho participates in the PLUS Program through the ASPPB.

Our consortium is located across the southwestern and southeastern corners of Idaho, part of the Intermountain West.
