Internship Consortium

The University of Denver GSPP Internship Consortium, an APA accredited program, consists of seven sites in the Denver metropolitan area including a state psychiatric hospital, residential treatment home for children and adolescents, health maintenance organization, community mental health center, police psychology agency, and two university counseling centers.

Interns are at their sites Monday-Thursday, then meet together on Friday for a full day of training seminars which include professional issues, research, assessment, diversity/multiculturalism, and an intern lunch.

Denver is quickly becoming one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the U.S. Census data show that the Denver population includes 11.1% Black or African American, 31.7% Hispanic or Latinx, 2.8% Asian American and Pacific Islander, and approximately 1% Native American residents. This diverse community encompasses the historic African-American neighborhood of Five Points, "Little Saigon" on the Westside, a thriving Latino and Mexican-American community on the Eastside, and a vibrant LGBT neighborhood in Capitol Hill.  Situated in this energetic metropolitan community, the University of Denver is committed to building and sustaining a culturally diverse faculty, staff, and student body.

The Internship Consortium is dedicated to diversity and inclusion. Our sites work with underserved communities and provide culturally competent care.  Several sites have access to interpreters and sign language specialists with others offering bilingual supervision. Interns participate in a year-long diversity seminar that focuses on increasing cultural competence through knowledge, skills, and values/attitudes.

We are a partially-affiliated program, which means that some qualified DU GSPP students are given preference in the national match, but each year about half the cohort is from other accredited academic programs located throughout the U.S.
