The SFCIP is fully affiliated with the Nova Southeastern University College of Psychology (COP) doctoral programs and only accepts applications from NSU COP students.The South Florida Consortium Internship Program (SFCIP) is a collaborative effort of Nova Southeastern University and cooperating agencies whose mission is to offer a 2000-hour doctoral internship for qualified doctoral students in health service psychology. The aim of the SFCIP is to train and educate interns to competently practice health service psychology following the Practitioner Informed by Science model of training. Upon completion of the internship, the intern will have acquired the knowledge, skills and professionalism to move to the postdoctoral resident level. SFCIP members are committed to a philosophy of providing interns with the opportunity to acquire generalist skills through the provision of instruction, supervision, and experience in a wide spectrum of functions engaged in by a health service psychologist. The community-based training sites that form the SFCIP provide an array of clinically and culturally diverse populations that offer our interns supervised clinical training and experience during a one-year placement at one of the Member sites (see handbook for site decriptions:https://psychology.nova.edu/common-pdf/programs/trainingprograms/sfcip-handbook-201920.pdf), supplemented by weekly training activities at NSU. Nevertheless, all SFCIP interns are expected to develop proficiency in the execution of the 9 profession-wide competencies (e.g., research, ethical and legal standards, individual and cultural diversity, professional values, attitudes, and behaviors, communication and interpersonal skills, assessment, intervention, supervision, and consultation and interprofesional skills) within community settings (i.e., Consortium partner sites). Training in a breadth of clinical issues and ethical and legal professional standards are incorporated into supervision and seminars to further prepare interns for generalist practice and the highest standards of professional conduct.
