Applications are not processed by NMS. Training Sites that participate in the Match access their applications using the AAPI application service.
When searching for programs of interest, applicants may consult two sources of information that are maintained separately - the APPIC Directory of APPIC-member internships and the Match List of Participating Internships. These two sources serve different purposes.
|APPIC Directory||Match List of Participating Internships|
|View||APPIC Directory||Match List of Participating Internships|
To avoid confusing applicants, please ensure that the training site name listed in the NMS Match System corresponds to the training site name used in the APPIC Directory.
In order to submit your Rank Order List(s) by the deadline for each Phase of the Match, all your applicant interviews should be completed before the Rank Order List deadline date for each Phase. You are reminded that, according to the Internship Site Agreement, you may not require any commitments from applicants or make any offers of appointment prior to the release of the Match results.
For Phase I of the Match, internship programs that conduct on-site or remote interviews must make a reasonable effort to notify every applicant who submits a complete set of application materials as to their interview status.
Programs and applicants are allowed to communicate about matters that do not involve the sharing of ranking information. Programs may voluntarily choose to inform applicants as to whether or not the applicants remain under consideration for admission (e.g., whether or not the applicant will be ranked), but are not obliged to do so. Programs must never request ranking information from any applicant, and applicants must never request ranking information from any program. Furthermore, prior to the release of the Phase II Match results, programs must not disclose to any applicant the position of any applicant on their Rank Order List(s) for either Phase of the Match, and applicants must not disclose to any program any information about their rankings for either Phase of the Match.
Programs must provide complete and accurate information to applicants during the application, interview, and evaluation processes concerning the internship position(s) available through the Match, including all institutional and program policies related to eligibility requirements for appointment.
List of Registered Applicants
Training Sites participating in the Match have access to a List of Registered Applicants in the NMS Match System. The list shows the name and Match Code Number assigned to each applicant who is registered to participate in the Match.
You must log in to the NMS Match System to access the list.
Only applicants who are registered for the Match can be included on your Rank Order List. Check that all applicants your training site intends to rank are included in the List of Registered Applicants.If you wish to rank an applicant who does not appear in the List, contact the applicant and encourage them to register for the Match as soon as possible.
Note: Applicants who match in Phase I of the Match are not eligible to match in Phase II. These applicants will be removed from the List of Registered Applicants prior to the opening of the NMS Match System for rankings for Phase II.
