Selection Criteria and Application Process

The Guam Psychology Internship Consortium has two (2) full-time positions. Guam-PIC is currently accepting applications from doctoral level students from APA-accredited and non-APA accredited programs. All applicants must be certified by their academic program as being ready for internship.
