High Plains Consortium Internship Sites
High Plains Psychology Internship Consortium (High Plains PIC) represents the collaborative effort of multi-site training network in Northern Colorado, Southeastern Wyoming, and western Nebraska to pool and share resources for the purpose of creating a high-quality internship that meets the unique clinical and workforce needs of rural Colorado, Wyoming, and Nebraska.
With training sites located across this wide range of communities, interns are placed primarily at one site for the full internship year with some opportunity to participate in training experiences at other sites within the consortium. The majority of sites are located in what is considered to the be the High Plains area, the expanse of land between the Great Plains and the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. The region has a high elevation with low moisture and is subject to wide (and sometimes extreme) ranges in temperature.
