APPIC Member Internship and Postdoctoral Health Service Psychology Training Programs

APPIC members are institutions where health service psychology doctoral interns and/or postdoctoral residents are trained. The Training Director of each member site serves as the contact person. APPIC member sites are billed annually for membership dues at least one month prior to the due date. Dues are for the CURRENT calendar year. The dues payment covers January 1 through December 31. Payment of dues is a condition of membership. Dues are nonrefundable and are not prorated for partial year membership. Programs that do not pay dues before April 1 will be assessed a $50 late fee. Programs that do not pay dues prior to September 1 will be subject to being deemed withdrawn from APPIC and will be removed from the APPIC Directory without approval for continuation from the APPIC Board or Executive Director. APPIC Member dues ($450) most recent increase was in 2011. APPIC DPA affiliation fee was last increased in 2011 ($275). APPIC match fees for both internships and DPA programs were increased in 2012, 2017 and 2022. The cost is contingent on the vendor's requirement. Regarding the most recent increase in 2022, APPIC absorbed part of that cost to ensure there was no increase to applicants.

Match Fees and Dues are required to be paid in full and are not refundable or reduced when a program withdraws from the match once the fees have been paid to APPIC nor is the program eligible for a partial refund if they leave APPIC prior to the end of the year. Programs should carefully consider whether they will be participating in the match or want to retain membership, as this could affect the program's current trainees. Programs that withdraw or initiate withdrawal but maintain membership will NOT be charged for a match fee for the next cycle unless they request to be placed back in the match. At that time, the program would be charged the match fee in order to participate in the APPIC match.
