  • All supervision meetings, podcasts/webinars selected, and presentations hosted by OPPIC are free of charge and do not require any additional fees beyond internet capability and computer updates. Some podcasts selected offer CEU credit or some conferences may have an additional cost for CEU credit, in addition to conference attendance.  CEU credit may be applicable to secondary licenses or certifications held by trainees (i.e. BCBA, NCSP, or LPC), if interns would like to purchase CEU credits for attending conferences or viewing Webinars/Podcasts this is a cost that is not covered by OPPIC and is an optional additional cost available to the intern at their own expense.
  • Interns are provided with a readings list and didactic schedule at the onset of the internship.  If interns would like a personal copy of any of the selected readings or would like to purchase audible recordings of books this is a personal expense.  However, if interns would like to read a hard copy of required readings, one copy of each required reading is housed at each training site that can be checked out/reserved during the week prior to the discussion of the selected reading. 
  • Conference attendance fees are provided for one conference each trimester covered by the internship training site. The internship site pays the cost of ‘student registration’ or ‘early career professional registration’ (whichever is most applicable). Registration cost cannot exceed $150/conference. If interns choose to attend a conference other than the recommended didactic conference selected by OPPIC, they are responsible for all fees associated with conference attendance and registration.  The internship site does not pay for any additional fees associated with the conference such as CEU credit or additional meetings that are not part of the general registration fees.  If interns choose to purchase any additional add-on fees, these fees are at the expense of the intern. Interns are required to pay for any associated costs of attendance of in person conferences including travel, lodging, and meals.  Exact conference fees and details are provided a minimum of 8 weeks prior to the first day of the conference, as many conferences do not publish materials, fees and details in advance.

Policies and Procedures Manual

2021-2022 Policies and Procedure Manual

Vaccination Policy

Each site placement accepts Federal Funding through Medicaid, Medicare, or other Federal Grant Funding. Therefore, each site is subject to the current Federal Vaccination policies. Across all placement sites, the COVID vaccine is strongly recommended and may be required pending current legislation. At this time, each location will have a vaccine mandate following the January 3rd federal deadline. This is subject to change based upon federal requirements and current legislative updates.

Nondiscrimination Policy

The Oklahoma Private Practice Internship Consortium (OPPIC) does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, age, gender identity and expression, or military/veteran status in its programs and activities.  As such, OPPIC welcomes applicants from diverse backgrounds. The training consortium believes that a diverse training environment contributes to the overall quality of the program. 

OPPIC’s goal in diversity training is to ensure that interns develop the knowledge, skills, and awareness necessary to provide competent psychological services to all members of the public. To this end, the OPPIC’s training program requires an expected competency in individual and cultural diversity. These competencies were developed to comply with the APA’s statement on Preparing Professional Psychologists to Serve a Diverse Public: “. . . professional psychology training programs strive to ensure that psychology trainees demonstrate acceptable levels of knowledge, skills, and awareness to work effectively with diverse individuals.” Diversity experiences and training are interwoven throughout the training program to ensure that interns are both personally supported and well-trained in this area.  Examples of training areas include but are not limited to supervision, book studies, didactic presentations, and conference attendance.

OPPIC provides equal opportunity to all prospective interns and as such welcomes applicants from diverse backgrounds.  Diversity among interns and supervisors enriches the educational experience, promotes personal growth, and strengthens communities and the workplace.  Therefore, we make a concerted effort to provide an inclusive, culturally sensitive workplace in which all staff and interns feel respected and comfortable, leading to optimal professional growth and development.
