The International Psychoanalytic Scholar Lectureship

The International Scholars Lectureship is entirely funded by the APM, which contributes the scholar’s time to the Columbia Psychoanalytic Center community. This event, in honor of past APM President Donald Meyers, M.D., is held every three years.

A distinguished international psychoanalytic scholar gives a formal evening lecture open to all members and the public, a seminar for candidates at the Center, and two or three seminars for APM members and faculty, over a period of several days. This lectureship carries an honorarium and includes travel expenses.
