ACEPT Match Open Feedback
(collecting responses through March 8, 2019) 

Open Feedback Instructions

ACEPT is considering adopting a centralized Training Site Directory and Match process for its member Training Sites, Academic Programs and Students. We are in the process of gathering feedback in order to draft a formal referendum that will be voted upon by ACEPT members in April 2019. Results of the vote will be announced at the May meeting, along with the election of officers. We hope to get input not only from current members of ACEPT, but also from non-ACEPT members of the Chicagoland Training community.


The full PracticumFit proposal and a summary of the proposal as well as a recent survey of the ACEPT listserv members can be found here: https://www.aceptchicago.org/practicum-app-process


Give feedback here.


On the survey you will be required to identify your role with ACEPT (Training Site, Academic Program, Student, non-ACEPT Respondent) as well as your name, and institution. This information will be publicly posted. We will also collect your email for verification purposes, but this information will not be posted publicly.

Sincerely,

The Practicum Match Ad-hoc Committee

Feedback Question 1

Should ACEPT sponsor a centralized training site directory?


ACEPT Training Sites would list and update their own information and students from Academic Programs would allow their students access to the directory. Sites would be able to select which programs have access to their directory page and Academic Programs would be able to choose which sites their Students have access to. The Universal Site Info Form would no longer be used. The startup cost for the directory would come from the ACEPT current savings fund and the annual fee for maintenance of the directory would come from the ACEPT operating budget. The startup cost would be $2500 with an annual maintenance fee of $1000.


What do you think of this process compared to the current process? Would you support a minimal fee increase to ACEPT dues in order to offset the cost of the directory? Do you have any concerns for or against the establishment of a centralized directory? What suggestions do you have for developing a centralized directory if you are in favor of it?

Feedback Question 2

Should ACEPT sponsor a centralized match process?


The match process would involve Students and Site registration with a centralized match portal. Students and Sites would register for the match and rank order their preferences through an on-line portal, similar to the APPIC process. Registration would occur annually with an associated fee. The fee could be assessed individually to each Student registrant (an average of $50 per student), or assessed to both Sites ($90 per Site) and Students ($35 per student).


What do you think of this process compared to the current process? What do you think of the annual fee structure for the match? Do you have any concerns for or against the establishment of a centralized match process? What suggestions do you have for developing a centralized match process if you are in favor of it?
