So, this is way in advance. I haven't even applied to doctoral programs yet. But since I read the posts about match day this year, I started wondering about matched applicants, and relationship to the programs applicants attended. In general, what makes a good candidate for an APPIC internship? Should you have many publications? Focus on clinical work? Depends on the internship site?? I'm basically thinking about this because I want to apply to programs that will give me good qualifications when I eventually apply for a clinical internship. I'm focusing on Psy.D. programs (ideally ones affiliated with research institutions, that is, not freestanding schools), as I'm currently working in research, & am realizing that I'm not a great fit for academia & research. I am worried that being matched is dependent on authoring many publications, and that Psy.D. programs may not provide enough opportunities to publish.
