The Dean

Harold Kelman, M.D.

New situations require novel responses. The rapid and widespread changes in the field of psychoanalysis require an awareness of them and the ways to meet them. This relates not only to the present but to the future. Fewer psychiatrists are seeking psychoanalytic training. Curricula have been modified, and the possibilities for easing the financial burden during the training period have been increasing. In keeping abreast of these trends we have revised our program as to its course content and length, while continuing our efforts to improve our teaching methods.

We have been ever alert to the factor of economics. As early as 1944 four loan fellowships were established. In 1946 the Institute was incorporated in order to make it possible for veteran candidates to avail themselves of the benefits of the G. I. Bill of Rights (Public Law No. 346). In 1957 our candidates could receive New York State Veterans Scholarships. We became eligible for benefits for veterans under the Korean Bill (Public Law No. 550) in 1952. We are now in the process of applying for approval for educational benefits for veteran candidates under the new Peace Time G. I. Bill (Public Law 89-358). In 1959 we added the Karen Horney Clinic Fellowships to the possibilities of financial remuneration. Throughout the history of the Institute, training analysts have made it possible for candidates to continue with their training without undue burden. The charging of minimum fees and deferring payment have been some of the individual arrangements made.

In 1965 we instituted a special financial program for residents. “Matriculated candidates in psychiatric residency training and/or in the first year of psychiatric practice following completion of a residency training program are, during this period, eligible for the following special financial arrangements: 1) Institute courses without fee; 2) Personal analysis at $ 15.00 per session; 3) Institute training supervision at $ 15.00 per session.”
