Once you log in to the NMS Match System for a particular program, you can download a document of the Phase II Match results for your training site. The first part of the document shows the applicants matched to your site. If your site offered more than one program in the Match, the results for all of your programs are shown in the same document and are separated by program.

Following the list of applicants matched to each program, the result page also includes a listing of the Match result for each of the applicants ranked by your site. Applicants are listed alphabetically and the training site and program to which each applicant is matched are shown. Applicants matched to your site are highlighted by an asterisk. The information in this report is confidential, is provided for your information only, and should not be distributed or made available to anyone outside your training site.

Contacting Applicants Matched to Your Site

Read information on contacting applicants matched to your site

You should contact the applicant(s) matched to your site as soon as possible after 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time on March 20, 2017 to acknowledge the Match result. In addition, according to APPIC Match Policies, you must document your agreement with each matched applicant in a letter to the applicant postmarked or e-mailed within 7 days following receipt of the Match results. A copy of that letter must be sent simultaneously to the applicant's academic training director.

Each applicant who was matched is now bound to accept the Match result as stipulated in the Applicant Agreement and the APPIC Match Policies. In the unlikely event that any applicant does not honor the Match result, please report this to either NMS or APPIC.

Unfilled Positions

If a program at your site did not fill all its positions, you may make offers beginning at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time on March 20 to any applicant who did not match to a position or to any applicant who did not participate in the Match.

APPIC Match Policies (especially Match Policy #9) apply to applicants seeking available positions and to programs with positions available after the Match. According to APPIC Match Policies, prior to making offers to fill open positions internship training directors must verify with applicants, to the best of their abilities, that the applicants have not previously been matched to other internship programs nor accepted other offers.

You may wish to list any unfilled positions using the APPIC Post-Match Vacancy Service. Instructions for using the APPIC Post-Match Vacancy Service are available on the APPIC web site at:

Note: No list of unfilled positions is distributed or provided to unmatched applicants after Phase II of the Match. Training sites with positions they would like to fill must specifically request that their site be listed in the Post-Match Vacancy Service as described above in order to make applicants aware of the vacancy.


Statistics for the Match are available on the APPIC web site at
