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 Deadline:   December 3, 2021

 

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.
