High Plains Consortium Internship Sites
High Plains Psychology Internship Consortium (High Plains PIC) represents the collaborative effort of multi-site training network in Northeastern 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, interns are placed primarily at one site for the full internship year with opportunities to participate in training experiences at other sites within the consortium. The majority of sites are located in the High Plains, a sparsely settled area known for ranching and farming. The region has a high elevation with low moisture and is subject to wide (and sometimes extreme) ranges in temperature. The rural communities and frontier environment encompassed by the High Plains boast ample opportunities for loan repayment through the National Health Service Corps loan repayment program.
