Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute & Society

Early Admission Program

Many wish to undertake psychoanalytic training, but are not prepared to begin full training. This may be the case when one is primarily occupied as a graduate student in psychology or social work or in residency training in psychiatry. There are also some who have just completed such training programs, but do not yet have sufficient psychotherapy experience.

The Early Admission program allows such individuals to be accepted as candidates but to begin a prematriculation program. This will consist of a single seminar on Saturday mornings, supervision of psychotherapy cases by psychoanalysts, and a personal analysis. This will be provided at reduced fees if it is necessary.

In a year or two, the early admission candidate can progress to full matriculation. Thus, this program allows mental health professionals/students to begin psychoanalytic training earlier in their career. It is user-friendly, affordable, and compatible with being a student in a basic mental health training program.
