Southeastern Idaho Psychology Internship Consortium is located in the southeastern corner of Idaho, part of the Intermountain West with an abundance of recreational activities. Health West - ISU Family Medicine is located within the city of Pocatello, State Hospital South is located just 25 miles north in the city of Blackfoot, and Pearl Health Clinic is located 45 miles north in the city of Idaho Falls.
The internship program is a 12-month, 2000-hour training program in which consortium interns have the opportunity to provide services in each setting. Each intern is assigned a major rotation for 12 months and participates in two 6-month minor rotations at each of the alternate sites, consisting of two days per week at each site. One day per week is devoted to two hours of group supervision, one hour of didactic teaching, 1.5 hours of diagnostic video review rounds, and 2 hours to videotape a psychiatric interview. There will also be some time for dissertation release as needed.
Our internship is unique in that it provides the intern with a wide range of inpatient and outpatient training experiences including general psychological services as well as forensic and health psychology.
For full overview of the consortium please view our consortium website which provides detail about the rotations and internship.
