The Tennessee Internship Consortium in Psychology (TIC), also referred to as the Consortium, consists of a number of cooperating agencies that offer a broad range of field experiences for qualified doctoral students in professional psychology.  All participating agencies are described on this website.  The University of Tennessee Educational Psychology and Counseling department plays a central role in administration, supervision and seminars.

The training program is individually designed but functions within the constraints required by funding commitments as well as needs imposed by didactic and clinical experiences.  The program consists of a 2000 hour internship that is completed within a 12 month period. Each agency provides a number of different settings for the intern.  Some interns may serve two concurrent agencies.  Supervision, seminars, staff meetings, and additional selected learning experiences are an important component of the internship program.  The program accepts applicants from doctoral students in school psychology.  Preference is given to school psychology applicants from APA accredited programs.
