APPIC Offers Complimentary Online Tracking of Clinical Hours through MyPsychTrack to Its Psychology Students and Doctoral Program Associates
Liaison International´s relaunch provides users with streamlined process and mobile interface.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 20, 2013
Demonstrating its commitment to its 414 associate programs, the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC), today announced that it will provide free access to the MyPsychTrack hours-tracking tool to all psychology students of APPIC-member internship sites and APPIC Doctoral Program Associates (DPAs). MyPsychTrack is an hours-tracking tool that allows students at all levels of training to record and track their clinical hours in a convenient web-based program that can also integrate data directly into APPIC´s AAPI Online tool for accurate and quick completion of internship applications.
“We recognized the need for an hours-tracking tool that can integrate directly into the AAPI Online through web-based software that provides accurate data and standardization across our field,” said Jeff Baker, Executive Director for APPIC. “Working with Liaison International, MyPsychTrack´s developer, we are now able to provide this valuable complimentary service to students — saving time, creating a more accurate application, and consequently easing some of the stress typically experienced through the internship application process.”
MyPsychTrack also allows supervisors access to verify hours and provides access to Directors of Clinical Training (DCTs) for review of student information. As a result, DCTs will have the capacity to oversee the clinical training of all students from their first practicum through internship.
“We are very excited to be relaunching MyPsychTrack with APPIC this July. Working closely with APPIC, we have enhanced the user experience of the MyPsychTrack software based on feedback from both programs and students,” said Michael Behringer, CEO of Liaison International. “This is a fresh new take on MyPsychTrack, providing users with a streamlined process and a mobile interface.
“Moving forward, we will also be working closely with APPIC and their member programs to expand the MyPsychTrack product suite,” he added. “Our shared vision is to develop features for competency assessment as well as integration with the professional-certification process.”
This spring and summer, APPIC and Liaison will schedule training-webinars for APPIC Doctoral Program Associates and their students using MyPsychTrack. APPIC Doctoral Program Associates will receive correspondence from Liaison International on MyPsychTrack´s new features, including details on free access to their students and interns.
