How to Apply

Eligibility


Applicants to the clinical training programs must be licensed to do clinical work in North or South Carolina, depending on where they reside. This can be a provisional license.

If accepted, clinical students in both training programs are required to join and maintain membership in the Psychoanalytic Center of the Carolinas. Academic students are encouraged to join, but it is not a requirement of matriculation.

Application Process

Applications for admission are accepted throughout the year, and matriculated students can be admitted in either the fall or spring semester.  There is one application process for the training programs and applicants who are accepted may matriculate in the psychodynamic psychotherapy program and/or the psychoanalysis program. Students choose their training program(s) after they are accepted and may begin coursework before making their choice.

Application Deadlines:

  • Fall Admission: Applicants who would like to begin matriculation in the fall semester must submit their application materials by March 1.
  • Spring Admission: Applicants who would like to begin matriculation in the spring semester must submit their application materials by September 1.
 

The Admissions process will include a series of interviews that will assess eligibility and suitability for training and, for clinical applicants, clinical aptitude. Each applicant for the training programs shall satisfy the Admissions Committee as to integrity of character and potential for personal maturation.

Unified Admissions Process
Students who are accepted into the training programs may pursue training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and/or psychoanalysis. Students choose their training program(s) after they are accepted and may begin coursework before making their choice.
Our program is affiliated with the American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA), which accredits our psychoanalysis training program. According to APsaA guidelines, psychoanalysis students must meet certain prerequisites to begin their psychoanalysis training. Therefore, depending on each individual's training and experience, some students who decide to pursue a psychoanalysis certificate may need to complete some of the psychoanalytic psychotherapy training first.
