Advance your skills guided by expert psychologists.
The Colorado Psychology Internship Consortium (CO-PIC) offers a one-year, full-time doctoral internship beginning and ending in July each year. The Consortium is comprised of five sites across Colorado: three sites in Eagle County and two sites in the Denver Metro Area. CO-PIC sites vary in regards to populations served and include: crisis response, trauma-focused care, integrated primary care, school-based, sports psychology, and first responders.
The Consortium provides 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 have a primary placement at one site. To foster team cohesion, all interns and faculty meet in person for shared training activities at least three times throughout the internship year. Additionally, interns and faculty participate in training virtually via videoconference on a weekly basis. Across training sites, interns complete an average of 15-20 hours per week of face-to-face direct service delivery.

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 2023-2024 cohort application and interview process. CO-PIC strongly prefers in-person interviews; however, safety is a number one priority. In-person interviews are scheduled to be conducted in January 2023 for this application/interview cycle; however, the consortium is poised to pivot to virtual interviews, if necessary. Please check the COPIC website for regular updates.
The Colorado Psychology Internship Consortium (CO-PIC) received accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation in October 2018. Questions related to the program’s accreditation status should be directed to the Commission on Accreditation.
