This article reviews the ongoing supply-demand crisis in internship availability and the models that have been proposed as solutions. "Restraint of trade" has been the chief argument used by regulating agencies to dampen solutions aimed at the demand side of the supply-demand crisis. We offer a legal analysis of the restraint of trade argument and offer a solution to the crisis through utilization of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) match program, accreditation of programs by the American Psychological Association, and/or development of internship programs by doctoral programs.
