Training Options at NYPSI

The New York Psychoanalytic Institute has been training psychoanalysts since it’s founding in 1931. Today, NYPSI’s varied educational activities include training in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy, as well as psychology externships, internships and post-doctoral studies. In addition, NYPSI offers a year long psychoanalytic fellowship program for social work and psychology graduate students, and psychiatric residents. Our Scholars Program offers non-clinical psychoanalytic education to members of academic disciplines whose work would be enhanced by a psychoanalytic perspective.
