Infant Mental Health Fellowship Certificate Program

The Fellowship is a part-time post-graduate program with course work and clinical experience offered over two years.

Our fellows and faculty are a diverse group of clinical professionals, representing a range of disciplines, backgrounds, and personal/professional situations. The Fellowship draws on this richness to develop an environment for learning from each other in the context of open dialogue and self-reflection. Fellows are encouraged to share their thoughts, questions, and responses in class as we build a base of knowledge and collaboration.

Students who successfully complete all three components meet the requirements for the Certificate in Infant Mental Health.

Time and Day

  • The Fellowship meets on alternate Friday mornings, 9:00 a.m. – 1:15 p.m. The Infant Observation course meets after this from 1:45 - 3:45 p.m. There are 20 sessions from September to early June.


IPTI is pleased to be able to offer two scholarships for the 2017-2019 cohort of the Infant Mental Health Fellowship Certificate Program. The scholarships cover full tuition for the Fellowship for two years and the required Infant Observation course. Both scholarships are for people of color; one scholarship is available to candidates from the Boston community and also covers up to $300 per year in expenses related to Fellowship participation.
