Internship Aim

The aim of the New Mexico Psychology Internship Consortium (NM-PIC) is to prepare and retain high quality and culturally competent psychologists to provide collaborative public mental health care for the diverse children, adolescents, and adults of New Mexico.

General Information

The New Mexico Psychology Internship Consortium (NM-PIC) represents the collaborative effort of three agencies, Hidalgo Medical Services in Silver City, Iina Counseling Services at Indian Health Services in Shiprock, and the New Mexico Behavioral Health Institute in Las Vegas, to share resources and faculty for the purpose of providing a quality educational program for psychology doctoral interns focusing on culturally relevant and responsive treatment to New Mexico residents of all ages. Please note that NM-PIC is a psychology doctoral internship program and not a practicum training site.



NM-PIC is not accredited by the APA. NM-PIC submitted an accreditation self-study to APA in March 2022 and has a site visit scheduled for March 2024. Please be advised that there is no assurance that we will be able to successfully achieve accreditation.
