We welcome applications from individuals who are at least 25 years of age and have a Master’s or higher degree in Psychiatry, Psychology, Social Work, or Psychiatric Nursing, as well as those with Master’s degrees in other clinical disciplines, such as Creative Arts Therapy, Family Therapy and Counseling.

In addition, professionals with graduate degrees in fields that enrich psychoanalysis, such as education, philosophy, sociology, and the humanities are encouraged to apply.

Applicants with previous psychoanalytic training at other IPA Institutes may make an inquiry to the Admissions Committee regarding the possibility of obtaining advanced status. The Committee will consider each case in light of the applicant’s prior experience, the comparability of his or her previous training, and the Institute’s standards.
