Psychoanalytic Fellowship at NYPSI

247 East 82nd St., between 2nd & 3rd, NY, NY 10028

Daria Colombo & Lincoln Hess, Co-Chairs

The Psychoanalytic Fellowship is a one-year program at the New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute designed to introduce participants to modern psychoanalytic theory and practice. Fellows attend two monthly seminars. In one seminar, invited analysts from our faculty present analytic case material and join the class discussion of the case. In the other seminar, discussion and readings are used to teach psychoanalytic principles that inform current expertise in psychoanalysis as a form of therapy, psychoanalysis as a model of how the mind works, and psychoanalysis as a method of investigating clinical data.

Seminars are conducted on the second and fourth Tuesday evenings of the month during the academic year, September through May. There is no tuition fee.

Application to the Fellowship is open to candidates earning doctoral degrees in psychology and social work, residents and fellows in psychiatry, and licensed clinical social workers currently pursuing advanced training or experience in psychotherapy. June 30, 2015 is the deadline for applying for the academic year September 2015-May 2016.

Applicants are selected on the basis of recommendations from their training program and by personal interviews. Preference is given to applicants who have begun working with outpatients in their primary program. Fellows receive paid tuition for the winter meetings of the American Psychoanalytic Association and are encouraged to attend lectures at the Institute. Fellows may elect to have a mentor from the Institute should they wish one.

Interested persons should contact Dr. Daria Colombo, by telephone at (212) 861-1225 or by email at, or Dr. Lincoln Hess, by telephone at (212) 987-6515 or by email at
