Postdoctoral Psychology Fellowship

Training & Education » Other Options » Postdoctoral Psychology Fellowship

The White Institute offers qualifying postdoctoral level psychologists and, if space is available, advanced externs who are near completion of their doctorate, a half- time (18 hour) Fellowship at the Institute's Clinic.  At our outpatient clinic, in operation for over sixty years, we treat a wide range of patients at affordable fees.  The goal of the Postdoctoral Fellowship is to provide trainees with the opportunity to work intensively under supervision with a few patients while focusing on the interplay of intrapsychic and interpersonal dynamics. Clinic Fellows will treat three patients per week and be provided with free tuition and  two free hours of  supervision per week.  Fellowship supervisors are graduates of the White Institute's Certificate Program in Psychoanalysis.  An optional second year is available. Postdoctoral Fellows will receive fees for service and may obtain all or a portion of the clinical hours required for clinicians with limited permits to become New York State licensed psychologists.
