The Nevada Psychology Internship Consortium (NV-PIC) represents the collaborative effort of three sites within one state agency, the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH), to share resources and faculty for the purpose of providing a diversified educational program for psychology interns. NV-PIC offers a one-year, full-time doctoral internship beginning and ending in August each year. The 4-digit general APPIC Program Code for NV-PIC is 2323. Training takes place at two training sites in or around Las Vegas and Carson City. The consortium sites are:

  • Rural Clinics - Carson City (RCCC): The APPIC Program Code for CCRC is 2323-14.
  • Southern Nevada Adult Mental Health Services (SNAMHS): SNAMHS offers two internship tracks, a clinical-general track and a clinical-forensic track. The tracks are described further in the NV-PIC brochure (below) and on the SNAMHS page.
    • The APPIC Program Code for SNAMHS "general" track is 2323-12.
    • The APPIC Program Code for SNAMHS "forensic" track is 2323-15.

Applying to NV-PIC

The consortium currently offers 3 full-time internship positions. Applicants may apply to as many sites within the consortium as they wish.
