California Psychology Internship Consortium (CPIC)

a

The California Psychology Internship Consortium is an APA-accredited training program dedicated to offering psychology internships that support future professionals to acquire broad-based clinical skills and competencies that are evidenced-informed/evidenced-based, ethically-sound, and culturally-sensitive. Interns receive education and training via a year-long placement at one of our training partners — Department of State Hospitals-Coalinga (DHS-C), Porterville Developmental Center (PDC); San Quentin State Prison (SQSP); State Center Community College District, Fresno (SCCCD); Sutter Center for Psychiatry (Sutter); and the W. Gary Cannon Psychological Service Center (PSC) — as well as through didactics, consultation, and socialization experiences in which partners join to collectively support intern development.'
