Michael A. Civin’s education is actually very strong, beginning with his A.B. Degree, which he earned cum laude from Harvard way back in 1968. He followed that by going to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine from 1968-69. He wasn’t finished, though, since he earned two Master’s Degrees, including an M.A. from the University of Oregon in 1970 and another, this time in Clinical Psychology from Adelphi University’s Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies.
He officially earned the right to call himself Michael A. Civin, Ph.D. when he earned his doctorate in 1986 and his Postdoctoral Certificate in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in 1993, both from Adelphi. In between, he earned a medical degree from the Pennsylvania Institute of Straight Chiropractic in 1988. Most people who know Michael A. Civin, Ph.D. these days know him as a clinical psychologist in New York City. And many do know him, from his position as a major player in New York’s psychological services industry for the bulk of his career, which has run almost three decades so far. However, his education is impressive.
