The APPCN Match

  • What is the APPCN Match?

    The APPCN Resident Matching Program (the "Match") provides an orderly process to help applicants obtain positions in neuropsychology residency sites of their choice, and to help residency sites obtain applicants of their choice.

    The Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN) is responsible for establishing the policies of the Match and for monitoring the implementation of the Match. The Match is administered by National Matching Services Inc. (NMS), on behalf of APPCN.

  • Is my residency site eligible to participate in the APPCN Match?

    Clinical residency programs, as well as programs that are primarily focused on research but whose training activities are at least 25% clinical, are eligible to participate in the Match. Research fellowships whose training activities are less than 25% clinical are not eligible to participate in the Match.

    Residency sites that are members of APPCN are required to participate in the Match if they have positions available that begin training in 2022.

    Residency sites that are not members of APPCN may also participate in the Match provided they meet certain minimal qualifications as outlined in the Statement of Qualification for Non-Members of APPCN, agree to abide by the APPCN Match Policies, and pay a Match registration fee.

  • How do I register my residency site to participate in the APPCN Match?

  • I'm not getting emails from NMS.

    Contact NMS if you think NMS has sent you an email that has not been received.

    While NMS regularly communicates with most educational institutions in North America, there may be site specific IT policies that are preventing you from receiving email from NMS. Please provide the NMS emails and/or IPs to your IT department to ensure that NMS's emails are not being blocked.
