The APPIC Internship Match tends to be one of the most stressful events of a doctoral psychology student’s education and training. Not only is there a chance that you won’t match with an internship, but the sheer amount of time and money that it takes to participate in the match can be incredibly overwhelming.
Mid-August to the end of October is APPIC Season at Time2Track. During this time of year, we receive many questions about the AAPI and the APPIC Match and every year we’re reminded of the fact that resources for APPIC Applicants are few and far between. Many are outdated, and they are scattered all over the place.
To help you prepare for the AAPI, the APPIC Match, and beyond, we’ve compiled the ultimate list of APPIC Match Resources from around the web. Some are older, but still relevant, while others are more recent. Below you’ll find news articles, videos, how-to articles, slideshares, and more. Don’t forget to add any resources we might have missed in the comments section below.

Here are some tips, frequently asked questions, and instructions for tracking hours during this final step.
