With regard to the accreditation status of the internship programs that participated in Phase II:

  • 72% of applicants who were matched in Phase II were placed in accredited internship positions, as compared to 60% in 2016 and 35% in 2015.

  • 50% of positions in Phase II were in accredited programs, as compared to 46% in 2016 and 29% in 2015.

  • 80% of positions in accredited programs in Phase II were filled, as compared to 84% in 2016 and 88% in 2015.

  • 31% of the positions in non-accredited internship programs in Phase II were filled, as compared to 48% in 2016 and 68% in 2015.

NOTE: APPIC and NMS have made some changes to how information is presented in this report. For example, in previous years, programs and positions that submitted no ranks in Phase II were grouped with those that withdrew, whereas this year they are grouped with other available positions. These changes were made in order to better reflect the shifting imbalance between applicants and positions. In this report, the previous years' data shown above has been re-calculated in a manner consistent with the 2017 statistics, but comparisons of this report to previous years' Match statistics should be performed cautiously.
