ISPIC program completers and dually-credentialed professional psychologists report that the ISPIC Learning Community is a great place to find support for their professional identity and to stay current on issues relevant to doctoral-level school psychology practice, filling an existing gap they've experienced between resources available to them in the NASP and APA Division 16 communities.

Welcome to ISPIC

The Illinois School Psychology Internship Consortium (ISPIC) offers doctoral internship positions in a variety of settings across the State of Illinois. Positions provide experiences in schools, hospitals, residential treatment programs, and clinics in rural, suburban, and urban settings. The program complies with all requirements of the National Association of School Psychologists and is accredited by the American Psychological Association.*


Becoming an ISPIC Colleague Institution!

ISPIC has provided a capstone experience to nearly 300 students! Since development in 2002, ISPIC's operating expenses have been funded by the four institutions with school psychology doctoral programs in the state although less than half the interns trained have been from Illinois. ISPIC has extended an invitation to school psychology programs from outside Illinois to partner with us by becoming Colleague Institutions. Just as the Illinois universities, these Colleague Institutions understand that their financial contribution does not afford their students any preference in the match process. In addition, universities are under no obligation to become Colleague Institutions when their students intern with ISPIC. Rather, members have access to the ISPIC In-touch Newsletter, Governing Board Reports, ISPIC Drive resources, and students are invited to attend ISPIC-sponsored professional development events free of charge . Unlike the four sponsoring Illinois institutions, Colleague Institutions do not have representation on the ISPIC Governing Board.
