MAIC is an APA accredited clinical psychology internship program designed for The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCSPP) students, and for other TCSPP campuses during Phase II & Post Match Vacancy, when slots are advertised. Interns place at one of MAIC member sites for the entire year. The Consortium Training Director manages the program. MAIC operates as a learning community across all sites. Each site has a Primary Supervising Psychologist who manages the intern experience at the site. All sites have other supervisory psychologists and multidisciplinary staff who work closely with the interns. Each site offers a broad range of generalist and specialty services, for both children and adults, and offers experiences with diverse populations with moderate to severe diagnoses. Note that all interns have experiences being supervised in crisis intakes, intervention, assessment, outreach, consultation, evidence-based practice, culturally informed practice, case presentations, supervision of others, management activities, program development, and specialty services at each site. Sites are organized so as to achieve all MAIC learning aims. Interns are evaluated on the new standards of accreditation competencies as listed in the Brochure. Site supervisors form an Oversight Committee for the benefit of quality assurance of the program. Interns visit all sites for training experiences and interact with each other weekly. Listed below is a brief description of each site, and more details can be found in the MAIC Brochure.
