Guest Scholar Program

The Greater Kansas City Psychoanalytic Institute is offering a new opportunity to explore our training programs.  Those interested in being a Guest Scholar may make application for selected courses across the upcoming academic year (one per quarter and up to five as a Guest Scholar), excluding technique courses and Continuous Case Seminar.  You can see the course listing for the current academic year below, under "2022-23 Academic Schedule."  Members of the Admissions Committee are available to help you think about what course(s) might be most helpful in your professional development. Note that the Curriculum & Faculty Committee may change the academic schedule from time to time.


After receiving your application, there will be a formal interview with an Admissions Committee member and a vote of acceptance by our Education Committee.  Applications will be kept on file for up to four years.  Acceptance in your preferred course(s) is determined by the Institute’s Curriculum & Faculty Committee along with considerations from the course faculty. 


At present, the cost for each course is $400 with a $50 application fee, and CEUs/CMEs will be provided.  Courses are offered on Fridays at 1:30 or 5:00 p.m. at the Center for Behavioral Medicine at 1000 E. 24 St., Kansas City, MO 64108.
