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.
