About the Consortium

The Illinois Psychological Association Predoctoral Internship Consortium (IPAPIC) was founded to join together training organizations in Illinois to create training opportunities for Illinois psychology Interns. IPAPIC endeavors to grow each and every year by joining with new organizations to offer new training prospects. An important mission of IPAPIC is to offer services to underserved communities. By linking agencies, IPAPIC is able to offer such services, since the consortium shares training and supervision responsibilities. IPAPIC is a multi-site training program that provides organized, sequential learning experiences for doctoral Interns. The Consortium ensures an integrated training experience through shared standards, common procedures, and joint didactic learning programs. The Consortium brings together urban and rural training sites to provide broad exposure to differing models of training and service delivery. There is a particularly strong emphasis on advanced training in cultural competence.
