The Psychoanalytic Association of New York (PANY) is one of the largest psychoanalytic institutes in New York, with a faculty of 150 psychoanalysts who teach a full range of clinical skills through seminar instruction, case supervision, personal treatment and mentoring. PANY is known for its emphasis on clinical work, case and practice development, collegial atmosphere, faculty scholarship, and opportunities for active participation in the PANY community. Our fundamental orientation is contemporary conflict theory, building on and reinterpreting the work of Freud, and integrating his work with Kleinian, British Object Relations, Relational, self-psychological, and attachment theories.

This program explores the evolution of psychoanalytic thought and its contemporary application, and produces psychoanalysts of the first rank. Our candidates are encouraged to approach their studies with an attitude of critical inquiry. The curriculum is composed of one’s personal analysis, theoretical and clinical seminars, and supervision of psychoanalytic work. Classes take place on Saturdays, with some Tuesday evenings during the first year. From the start, there is a strong emphasis on psychoanalytic case development.
