Program Description

The mission of the Illinois Psychological Association (IPA) Pre-Doctoral Internship Consortium (IPAPIC) is to offer quality training in diverse settings to doctoral Interns, while also creating networks between Interns, agencies, IPA, and IPA members. 

An important mission of IPAPIC is to offer services to underserved communities. By linking agencies, IPAPIC is able to offer such services, since training and supervision responsibilities are shared by the consortium.

At IPAPIC, Interns are given opportunities for professional development through involvement and mentorship with Illinois’ state association. Interns are supported and encouraged to engage in advocacy work, particularly through their involvement as a student member on the IPAPIC Board. Further, through a monthly 4-hour meeting, Interns are able to connect with peers from all the other tracks who are gaining Internship experiences from the diverse settings and treatment modalities. This meeting includes a 2-hour didactic followed by a 2-hour peer meeting. This 2-hour peer meeting is in an effort for the Intern cohort to become an ongoing support and consultation group for one another.
