Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Training Program (SF-PPTP)

TUITION AND FEES

You will need to pay annual tuition fees each year you are enrolled in the program. Please note that tuition rates and fees are subject to change and typically increase 3-5% each year.  Please read the sections below carefully and feel free to call acting program chair Maria Longuemare (email link) if you have questions or concerns about cost. 

Annual tuition fees cover the following:

  • Seminars and Case Conferences for the full academic year
  • Access to Psychoanalytic Electronic Publishing (PEP) and EZ-Proxy online databases of books and articles
  • Community Membership at SFCP – Community Membership is an entry into a vibrant community of clinicians, scholars, and educators united by their common interest in psychoanalytic practice and thought. Access to a broad range of educational and professional development activities is available to Community Members of SFCP, including free attendance at Scientific Meetings and reduced fees for other programs.
  • Access to the SFCP Library – extensive collection of psychoanalytic books and journals.

Annual tuition fees do NOT cover the following resources and services:

  • Application fees:  All applicants to Foundations or to SF-PPTP Year 1 pay a $55 application fee which is non-refundable unless the applicant is not accepted. 
  • Supervision fees – these are arranged individually between supervisor and supervisee on a sliding scale, usually at a rate of 50% of the patient’s per-session fee, within the suggested range of $50-$125 per session. See section above on Supervision as well as the SF-PPTP Training Manual for more information about supervision fees.
  • Occasional assigned readings which are not on PEP Web or EZ-Proxy – these will be available online for a small additional fee.
  • CE/CME credit fees – if you wish to receive CE/CME credits, these are available according to the SFCP CE/CME credit policy (see CME/CE Credits Policy for more information).
