The Immaculata University Psychology Internship Consortium (IU-PIC) provides professional internships to Immaculata University Clinical Psychology PsyD students during Phase I of the APPIC Match. Non-Immaculata University applicants may participate in Phase II and during the Post Match Vacancy Service.
The IU-PIC offers a full time (12 month), 2080-hour internship, beginning July 1. The IU-PIC is a cooperative training program, which includes many agencies and organizations across the area, primarily within commuting distance of Immaculata University. The IU-PIC is based on a practitioner scholar model of clinical practice and is designed to provide a broad-based clinical training experience, preparing interns to function ethically, competently, and independently as professional psychologists as they refine practice skills and develop a sense of professional identity. Experiential and didactic experiences provide an enriching learning environment, which encourages interns to become analytical and critical consumers of current theory and practice. The program is committed to training interns in developing a greater understanding of how cultural factors influence human behavior, and is designed to prepare generalists who are capable of providing psychological services to diverse populations. Interns receive extensive experiential training in the core areas of psychology practice including research, ethical and legal standards, individual and cultural diversity, professional values, attitudes and behaviors, communication and interpersonal skills, diagnosis and assessment, intervention, supervision, consultation and interprofessional/interdisciplinary skills.
