COVID-19 Update: The Colorado Psychology Internship Consortium is closely monitoring the COVID-19 crisis. We are doing our due diligence around equitability and safety measures with regard to the 2022-2023 cohort application and interview process.
All interns who match to CO-PIC sites must provide proof of citizenship or legal residency and must successfully pass a background check before beginning employment. The intern at STRIDE and EVBH also must provide results from a tuberculosis (TB) screening test from the previous 12-months. All CO-PIC sites require interns to provide proof of vaccination for COVID by the start of internship. Interns may also be required to maintain vaccination status with boosters as suggested by the CDC throughout their internship year. Instructions for providing information or completing the background check will be sent out to all who match after the match is complete.
Candidates will interview with each site for which they have been offered an interview and will also have an opportunity to meet with the larger consortium training staff. Interview formats include interviews, town halls, and opportunities to meet our current interns. Interviews are scheduled for January 12th, 13th, and 19th, 2022. Optional in-person open houses will be offered for each site the week of January 24th, 2022 (actaul dates TBD). Candidates selected for the interview process will be notified no later than 12/3/2021 via email. Interview dates are scheduled on a first-come, first-scheduled basis. If there are any questions or concerns about interview schedules, please communicate them directly with CO-PIC Training Director via email.
The Colorado Psychology Internship Consortium’s (CO-PIC) mission is to prepare and retain psychologists to provide high quality behavioral health care for Coloradans of all ages. CO-PIC represents the collaborative effort of four organizations - Bright Future Foundation, STRIDE Community Health Center, The Hope Center, and Eagle Valley Behavioral Health- to share resources and faculty for the purpose of providing a diversified educational program for psychology interns. Training takes place in 4 trainings sites across two geographic areas of Colorado: Eagle River Valley and the Metro Denver Area.
The Colorado Psychology Internship Consortium (CO-PIC) offers a one-year, full-time APA Accredited doctoral internship beginning and ending in July/August each year. The Consortium will provide a range of clinical and didactic experiences that represent the necessary depth and breadth required for future professional practice with Colorado’s rural and underserved populations. Interns will have a primary placement at one site. All interns will meet in-person for shared training activities at least six times throughout the internship training year, and will participate in training together virtually via videoconference on a weekly basis. Across training sites, interns will complete an average of 10-20 direct contact hours per week. For more detailed information, please visit our program website, www.co-pic.org.
