About the Program

This Certificate in Psychedelic-Assisted Therapies and Research will serve a growing need for the training of licensed therapists and medical researchers for future FDA-approved psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy research, as well as therapeutic work during expanded access clinic research programs. Enrollees are from specific licensed professions in mental health and medicine. Download the program and application 2020 Information Packet.

Hybrid Residential and Online Curriculum: The 180-hour 2020 certificate program includes 5 meetings: 4 long weekends in the San Francisco Bay Area at CIIS; a 7-day residential Bay Area retreat in late June; 35 hours of mentoring, volunteer work or supplementary experiential training; and 25 online hours of review of instructional videos of the didactic modules. Thus, this well-organized hybrid academic program entails 120 hours of residential study in the San Francisco Bay Area and 60 hours of study and practice at home. Such a hybrid program enables trainees from outside of California and the U.S. to more readily participate in the training program.
