The National Psychology Training Consortium (NPTC),

a pre-doctoral psychology internship, is a collaborative consortium consisting of psychological and primary care service centers throughout the United States focused on provision of services with rural and underserved patients. NPTC was founded in 2003 through a collaboration of The School of Professional Psychology at Forest Institute and Royal Oaks Hospital to create new internship positions in underserved areas. Over the past thirteen years NPTC has trained and prepared over 200 interns and residents – all in a rural or underserved context.
