Students interested in applying for the internship program will submit an online application through the APPIC website. Each site within the consortium will have a separate Match number, which applicants must use to apply for and rank sites individually.
A completed application consists of the following materials:
Email Franci Crepeau-Hobson at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions related to the consortium.
All application materials must be received by December 31 in order to be considered. All applicants will be notified of their application status by e-mail. If applicants are invited to interview, they will be notified by email on or before January 5. Interviews will be scheduled in late January. In person interviews will take place at the individual consortium sites. Video conference interviews will be provided in cases where travel to Colorado is not an option.
CoS-PIC bases its selection process on the entire application package noted above; however, applicants who have met the following qualifications prior to beginning internship are considered preferred:
CoS-PIC is partially affiliated with the University of Colorado Denver School Psychology Program; therefore, applicants from CU Denver will be given priority for interviews, followed by students from the University of Denver and the University of Northern Colorado school psychology programs. Applicants from other school programs are still considered and encouraged to apply.
CoS-PIC values the unique contributions that diverse interns provide within training and work environments. The Training Committee strongly encourages applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply.
CoS-PIC takes into consideration the potential commitment of prospective interns to remain in the Denver metro area following their internship. Developing a strong behavioral health workforce is an important consideration for the consortium and remaining in the diverse, underserved area to join the workforce is considered a benefit.
CoS-PIC requires that the matched intern meet site-level criteria, including a background check, to begin their training year. If intern does not meet site-level criteria, the match agreement will be terminated and the intern will not be allowed to complete their internship within CoS-PIC.
