Our Education and Training

Fellowship in Psychoanalysis

The PANY Fellowship offers an introduction to psychoanalytic thought, practice, and professional development. 

  • Overview and Eligibility

    PANY offers a Fellowship in Psychoanalysis, designed to introduce practicing mental health professionals to a psychoanalytic way of thinking and working. Fellows meet on Saturday mornings thrpoughout the academic year to discuss psychoanalytic readings and perspectives on patient care. They also participate in one-on-one monthly mentoring meetings with a practicing psychoanalyst. The PANY Fellowship is highly selective. The tuition for the Fellowship is TBD, please check back for updates. There is no fee for NYU trainees. The fellowship year is September through June.

  • Monthly Meeting with Mentor

    The centerpiece of the program is a mentoring relationship with a practicing psychoanalyst who is a PANY faculty member. This affords the Fellow an opportunity to delve into topics of particular interest. Effort is made to match Fellows with a mentor with similar interests and location. The meetings take place monthly in the analyst’s private office and are arranged by the analyst and Fellow. Most mentors are located in Manhattan, but mentor assignments also may be arranged in Brooklyn, Long Island, Westchester, and Northern New Jersey.

  • Saturday Morning Seminars

    Fellows attend Saturday morning Seminars led by psychoanalyst faculty and senior candidates scheduled throught the academic year. The Fellowship seminar is designed as an introduction to psychoanalytic thinking, illustrated by seminal readings and relevant seminar presentations. 

  • Additional Educational Benefits

    Fellows are encouraged to attend events throughout the year, as well as the monthly scientific meetings organized through our committee on post-graduate education, the PANY Society Committee. Discounted participation may be arranged for the meetings of the American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA) through APsaA’s discounted programs. CME credit for PANY meetings is available. Alumni of the Fellowship program are invited to maintain an ongoing relationship with PANY through additional educational experiences.

  • Awarding the Fellowship in Psychoanalysis

    Applications are reviewed and acceptance decisions are made on a rolling basis. The awarding of Fellowships is a highly competitive process. A member of the Committee will speak with each applicant to explore their interests and ability to benefit from this psychoanalytic learning experience.


    Please note the Fellowship does not include a supervised clinical component or directly help to prepare for licensure, and there is no salary or stipend for Fellows.


    Applicants who are selected will be awarded the Fellowship in Psychoanalysis and will receive documentation of the award upon successful completion of the program.
