Access Institute’s post graduate curriculum is specifically designed to support psychoanalytic work in a community setting.

In the first, full time year, the didactic curriculum is divided into three categories: Theory, Technique, and Sociocultural Process, and there is a sequence of classes in each of these categories. Fellows in both years of the program participate in case conferences where they have an opportunity to bring theory to life in a collaborative group setting. In the optional, second year, the fellows take a professional development seminar.
