SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Posted this earlier in Allopathic but apparently the wrong forum! What's the general outlook of psychiatry? I'm not doing rotations just yet but planning them ahead. I'm definitely fairly interested. I'm a bit worried about mid level specialists similar to CRNA's and anesthesiology. Particularly in the mental health field you have clinical social workers/counselors and clinical psychologists who, in some states can even prescribe medication. I'm somewhat interested in child/adolescent psychiatry but to me job security counts more than a "general interest". Thanks I appreciate it!
