The Cape Cod Institute was founded by Gilbert Levin, Ph.D. while he was a professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Gil is a clinical and social psychologist who has been a researcher, teacher, and program developer for more than forty years. Dr. Levin was inspired by Sigmund Freud’s tradition of teaching his own students—psychoanalysts—during summers in the Austrian Alps.

About this 35th season, Dr. Levin says, “I’m especially excited about this year’s program because its teachers and topics reflect a genuine shift in emphasis toward wellness. We are beginning to ask less about what's gone awry and more about what's going 'aright.' And the most interesting thing is that this shift is supported by a growing body of fundamental research in neurobiology."

This year’s course catalog can be found at All sessions are held at the Nauset Regional School in Eastham. Each summer, the Cape Cod Institute contributes to the local economy by drawing hundreds of visitors to its hotels, restaurants and entertainment options such as whale watching, nature walks, art galleries and theatre.

The Institute is administered by Professional Learning Network, LLC.
