The 2018 APPIC Match

Release Dates

Match result information will be posted at 10:00 a.m. ET on February 23, 2018.

Phase II

Match result information will be posted at 10:00 a.m. ET on March 26, 2018.


When the results are released, the Director of Clinical Training (DCT) of each doctoral program will be provided with a report of the result obtained by each of their students who registered for the Match.


E-mail: Match result notification e-mails will be sent to all participating applicants and training sites, and to DCTs of doctoral programs. The e-mails are sent in the morning of the Match Results Release Date for each Phase of the Match with the intention of having all e-mails sent by 10:00 a.m. ET. Due to unreliable e-mail exchanges and inbound servers, we cannot guarantee a delivery time for the e-mails.

Web: Beginning at 10:00 a.m. ET on the Match Results Release Date for each Phase of the Match, each participating applicant, training site and DCT can log in to the NMS Match System to access their Match results information online. Instructions for accessing results will be provided to DCTs in December, 2017.

The same Match result information will be provided by e-mail and in the NMS Match System for each Phase of the Match. Any DCT that does not receive their results by e-mail should access their results from the NMS Match System.

Information on Positions Available After Each Phase of the Match

Phase I

Beginning at 11:00 a.m. ET on February 23, 2018 a list of programs participating in Phase II of the Match will be available from the home page of this web site.

The list will include all programs that had unfilled positions from Phase I of the Match, as well as any programs that are added to the Match after Phase I. Programs that had unfilled positions in Phase I but are no longer being offered in Phase II will be shown as crossed-out. The list will be updated nightly to include all internships offering positions in Phase II of the Match.

No list of programs with unfilled positions will be provided on this web site following Phase II of the Match.

Starting on March 26 at 11:00 a.m. ET, APPIC will operate a Post-Match Vacancy Service that will provide information on available positions. Training Sites that will be eligible to post information about available positions to the Post-Match Vacancy Service include APPIC-member training sites, non-member training sites that registered for the Match, and other non-member training sites that did not register for the Match but signed a Statement of Qualification and paid a Vacancy Service fee to APPIC.
