How InternFit Works

Complete Signup

First, you will need to complete your signup. You should have received an email with a unique invite code. This is tied to your school email address, which has been entered by your program administrator. If you haven't received it yet, contact your program administrator and request to have it re-sent. Make sure you check your spam folder!

Select Sites

Once you have completed registration you can select which sites you intend to apply to. Your program administrator has already filtered the list of available sites to show you only those that are applicable to your degree. Check off all you intend to apply to.

Apply to Sites

All your applications to CAPIC internships will be submitted on the InternFit System according to CAPIC's standards. You can send requests for Letters of Reference and upload individual cover letters for each application you submit along with your other application materials, all in in pdf format. No postage necessary.

Go to Interviews

You're on your own here! Remember which sites you liked best.

Rank Sites

Once you have completed your applications, you can log back into the InternFit and rank each of the sites you visited. You can feel free to change your answers as many times as you want, up until the Matching Process begins. Just drag items around in the list to reorder. Your ranking preferences will not be shared with the site or with anyone else, and will not affect how sites rank you.

Sites Rank You

Just like you are ranking your preference for sites, interviewers at the internship sites are ranking all of their applicants. They'll make a list of their top candidates.

Receive Match

Once all the preferential matches are in, InternFit uses a Nobel Prize-winning algorithm to match as many students as possible to the site they would most prefer, while also taking into consideration the site's preferences. InternFit uses a variant of the Gale-Shapely algorithm.


If you do not receive an online match, you may continue to seek one during CAPIC Clearinghouse/Post-Clearinghouse. Applications are created and submitted as before, but online ranking and matching are replaced with direct offers and acceptances between the sites and students.
