APPCN programs participate in a match program conducted by National Matching Services, Inc., which also conducts the match program for predoctoral internships. The procedures for the APPCN match are very similar to those used for internship. All applicants to APPCN programs should obtain an Applicant Agreement Package from National Matching Services, which can be obtained from the APPCN Resident Matching Program website at http://www.natmatch.com/appcnmat/. Applicants should return Agreement forms to National Matching Services, Inc, register for the match, and pay the match fee.
