The notice below was posted by APPIC.
NOTICE TO STUDENTS AND DIRECTORS OF CLINICAL TRAINING
We would like your assistance in notifying students who will be applying for internship this coming Fall about the existence of APPIC’s MATCH-NEWS e-mail list. An easy way to notify future internship applicants is to forward them a copy of this e-mail message.
The MATCH-NEWS e-mail list is an essential source of information about the APPIC Match. We VERY STRONGLY recommend that ALL students subscribe to MATCH-NEWS themselves rather than rely on others to forward the announcements to them.
In the coming weeks and months, APPIC will be distributing some important announcements about the Match, the AAPI, the APPIC Directory, etc., and it is imperative that all students receive this information. All Directors of Clinical Training (DCTs) and Internship Training Directors should be subscribed as well. Information about how to subscribe to MATCH-NEWS is provided below.
Thanks for your assistance. If you wish to unsubscribe from this list, please see the instructions at the end of this message.
THE MATCH-NEWS E-MAIL LIST
MATCH-NEWS is a free e-mail list provided by APPIC as a service to Match participants. It is very strongly recommended that all internship applicants (as well as academic and internship Training Directors) subscribe to this list as early as possible in the process (i.e., subscribe now if you plan to apply to internship programs this Fall). Students who are not yet ready for internship are also welcome to subscribe. MATCH-NEWS is an “announce-only” list, which means that only APPIC can post messages to the list. The volume of e-mail messages will generally be very small, usually ranging from zero to five messages per month. As the Match approaches, MATCH-NEWS will be the primary method of communicating important late-breaking news and information about the Match, as well as tips and suggestions about how to make the most of the process. Many applicants from previous years have told us that the messages posted to MATCH-NEWS were extremely helpful to them in navigating the selection process.
NOTE: If you previously signed up for MATCH-NEWS and are receiving messages, there is no need to sign up again.
To subscribe to the MATCH-NEWS e-mail list, send a blank e-mail message to the following address:
You will subsequently receive an e-mail message (with the subject line, “Your confirmation needed”) that contains instructions for you to follow in order to confirm your subscription. Simply follow the instructions in that message, and you will soon receive a “Welcome” e-mail in response. This “Welcome” e-mail confirms that you are successfully subscribed to the list (please note that you are NOT subscribed to the list until you have received the “Welcome” message).
PLEASE NOTE: If your e-mail program uses “Spam” or “Junk Mail” filtering, it is possible that the confirmation message from the APPIC server will be automatically redirected to your “Junk Mail” folder without your knowledge. If you do not receive a confirmation message in your “Inbox,” you should check your “Spam” or “Junk Mail” folder to see if the message is there.
See the contact info below if you have difficulty subscribing.
