One of US News & World Report’s top 10 psychiatric hospitals, The Austen Riggs Center has been a pioneer in training psychiatrists in the art and science of psychotherapy for the last century.   We are accepting applications for the 2-year Fellowship in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and linked 4-year ACPE-Accredited Adult Psychoanalytic Training Program. This program is, to our knowledge, the only program where one receives a salary for psychoanalytic training.  The Fellowship offers a competitive salary, full benefit package, and a stipend to cover 2 years of your personal psychoanalysis.
