Our Education and Training

Fellowship in Psychoanalysis

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

  • Overview and Eligibility

    PANY is offering a new Fellowship in Psychodynamics as a track within our Prelude to Training (please click here for the description of Prelude to Training program). The Fellowship is awarded to twelve applicants working in clinical settings who demonstrate a special interest in psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. The Fellowship consists of two parts: Saturday morning seminars throughout the academic year addressing an array of clinical topics, and a one-to-one monthly mentoring meeting with a practicing psychoanalyst from the PANY faculty. The PANY Fellowship is a no-cost and selective program requiring an application and interview. A certificate of completion is offered to those who satisfy the Program requirements.

  • Saturday Morning Seminars

    Fellows attend Saturday morning seminars taught by PANY faculty scheduled throughout the academic year. The Fellowship seminar is part of Prelude to Training (click here for more information.) In order to fulfill the certificate requirement, Fellows must attend at least ten of any of the Saturday morning seminars, but are especially encouraged to attend “Introduction to Theory and Technique in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy,” the 6-week course offered within the program (click here for more information),

  • Monthly Meeting with Mentor

    The centerpiece of the program is a mentoring relationship with a practicing psychoanalyst from the PANY faculty. These meetings afford an opportunity for Fellows to become more acquainted with psychoanalytic theory, practice, and areas of special interest. Meetings take place monthly in the analyst’s private office at a time arranged by the analyst and Fellow. Most mentors are located in Manhattan, but mentor assignments on occasion may be arranged in Brooklyn, Long Island, Westchester, and northern New Jersey. At least eight monthly mentorship meetings are required to be awarded the Certificate of Completion of the PANY Fellowship.

  • Additional Educational Benefits

    Fellows are encouraged to attend PANY events throughout the year, as well as the monthly scientific meetings organized by the PANY Graduate Society Committee. CME credit for PANY scientific meetings is available. Alumni of the Fellowship program are invited to maintain an ongoing relationship with PANY through additional educational events.

  • Awarding the Fellowship in Psychoanalysis

    Applications are reviewed and acceptance decisions are made on a rolling basis. The awarding of the Fellowship is a highly competitive process. A member of the Fellowship Committee will speak with each applicant to explore his or her interests and the ability to benefit from the Fellowship Program.

    Please note the Fellowship does not include a supervised clinical component or directly help 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 (see above for a description of requirements).
