From the Director, David Frank, MD

IPE is now PANY

On behalf of PANY, I am excited to announce the launch of our new website,, together with a new name and logo for our organization.


IPE, the Institute for Psychoanalytic Education, is now called PANY, the Psychoanalytic Association of New York, affiliated with NYU Langone Health.


The relationship between IPE and the original PANY goes back to the 1950’s.  The core mission of IPE, a psychoanalytic institute, included psychoanalytic and psychotherapy training, scholarship, and providing affordable treatment services to the New York City community. But the name IPE designated education only – not representative of the full scope of IPE’s activities.


The functions of the original PANY, a psychoanalytic society, included postgraduate education, sponsoring scientific meetings, representing IPE as councilors at the American Psychoanalytic Association, professional development, and enhancing the cohesiveness of our psychoanalytic community.


The longstanding close affiliation between the two organizations ultimately led to a merger in 2017.


Now all under one roof, the name PANY is more descriptive of the umbrella organization and its geographic roots in New York City. The individual program components will be: The Institute at PANY, The Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Program at PANY, The Postgraduate Society at PANY, The Outreach Program at PANY, The Fellowship at PANY, The Philadelphia Study Group at PANY, and The Distance Learning Program at PANY.


PANY is proud to maintain its affiliation with NYU Langone Health.


We want the website to represent who we are as well as who we continually aspire to be – a community that studies, teaches, promotes, and offers psychoanalytic treatment and ideas to our New York City community and beyond.  We hope that displays the warmth, collegiality, scholarship, openness, energy, rigor, and clinical focus of a diverse community, with strong roots, that believes deeply in the importance of the psychoanalytic enterprise - as a treatment and as a way of understanding the human mind.
