The Consortium offers one-year, full-time internships beginning and ending in early July each year. See the current brochure for specific start and end dates.
The consortium includes the following sites: Alaska Psychiatric Institute, inactive site for the 2020-2021 internship year; Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association; Providence Family Medicine Center/Alaska Family Medicine Residency; and Norton Sound Health Corporation.
The Consortium is comprised of treatment centers throughout Alaska and will provide a range of clinical and didactic experiences that represents the necessary depth and breadth required for future professional practice with Alaska’s diverse communities. Interns will have a primary placement at one site and will complete Alaska Specific Experiential Activities (AK-SEA) at other sites within the consortium. Across training sites, interns will complete a minimum of 500 hours per internship year of face-to-face direct service delivery.
One licensed psychologist will serve as primary clinical supervisor for each intern. Interns receive a minimum of two (2) hours of individual supervision each week from a licensed psychologist. Supplemental weekly individual supervision may be provided by other appropriately credentialed professionals at the training site. Weekly group supervision will be required and conducted with all interns across consortium sites via distance technology. Group supervision may focus on legal/ethical issues and clinical topics. All interns will receive a total minimum of 4 hours per week of supervision.
Research opportunities will vary across consortium sites.
