APPIC launched a centralized postdoctoral application system-APPA CAS (https://portal.appicpostdoc.org) in October 2014. In addition to providing a beneficial service for postdoctoral applicants and programs, the APPA CAS should serve as a unifying force for postdoctoral training programs. Long-term, APPIC would like to see a more formal unified selection process or match for postdoctoral programs.
Appic's online application process for new applicants and continuing membership. Programs upload their materials online and can track the progress of their submission. Programs are carefully reviewed by the New Member and Continuing Member Review Committees. Applications for membership and programs that are required to complete a 3 Year Renewal will use this system. Go to: membership.appic.org to sign in and receive or retrieve your login credentials (your email is your login).
The public may search the DoL at no cost to locate internships and postdocs that meet APPIC Membership requirements. Members now pay their dues and match fees online or continue to pay by check. ALL programs can update their information at any time, but a download is created every October to archive as a PDF. Please contact Central Office for assistance (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Academic programs that offer doctoral degrees in psychology may become APPIC Doctoral Program Associates (DPA). The fees paid by DPAs provides substantial benefits to the academic program and its students. DPA programs can pay their fees by calling Central Office or log on to their Directory Page and pay by credit card or invoice. In 2017 all programs that send students to the match MUST be DPA affiliates of APPIC.
Click on the TAB *(AAPI/APPA) at the top of appic.org for the most current updates on the new APPA CAS (APPIC Psychology Postdoctoral Application Centralized Application Service). Over 1000 students have begun their application since opening in October 2014. Over 100 postdoctoral training programs have created their application portal.
