Matching Program

The APPCN Resident Matching Program (the “Match”) places applicants into clinical neuropsychology residency positions at training sites in the United States and Canada.

The Match is sponsored and supervised by the Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN). The Match is administered on behalf of APPCN by National Matching Services Inc.

Until 2024, programs that are non-members of APPCN are welcome to participate in the Match and are listed as “Participating Programs” on the APPCN Resident Matching Programs Website. To determine eligibility, please review the Statement of Qualification for non-members on the Match website and contact NMS directly with contact info, program name, program director, mailing address, phone, fax, and email. Beginning in 2025, only APPCN Member Programs will be able to participate in the Match.

Important Match Dates:

Starting in 2024, Match submission and notification dates will be fixed on the 2nd and 3rd Wednesdays of February, regardless of the timing of the INS Annual Meeting. In-person interviewing at INS will therefore not always be feasible prior to the Match submission deadline.

2nd Wednesday in February (February 14, 2024): Final date for submission of applicant and program Rank Order Lists. 

3rd Wednesday in February (February 21, 2024): Results of the Match are released to applicants and program directors.

APPCN Match Recruitment Statement:

Surveys of applicants during the COVID-19 pandemic found that virtual interviews are extremely popular. Programs also indicated a broadly favorable experience with virtual interviews. There are advantages of interviewing at INS in terms of scheduling all interviews in the same place and during the same time window, which reduces applicant burden. But from an accessibility and equity perspective, virtual interviews seem to have an advantage. In that context, APPCN encourages programs to prioritize needs of applicants and consider access and equity issues when deciding how to conduct interviews. Starting in 2024, APPCN will no longer sponsor interview rooms at the INS meeting. The Match submission deadline will also be fixed on the 2nd Wednesday of February, which means that some years interviewing during the INS Meeting may not be feasible. Programs are encouraged to continue offering the option of virtual interviews, even if in-person interviews are also offered. Programs are also urged not to include format of the interview as a factor when completing rank order lists and to communicate this clearly to applicants. Programs are encouraged to think creatively about virtual and in-person options for interviews, open houses, meet and greets, etc. For example, programs could choose to interview virtually but also offer optional meet and greet times at INS for applicants who are attending and interested in meeting program faculty in person.
