Hey guys I'm currently finishing a CL psychosomatic medicine fellowship. After doing my medical school CL rotation I absoluetly knew I would go into psychiatry just for the sake of doing CL and no one, esp my parents, could tell me otherwise. Honestly psychiatry was the absolute last field I ever thought I would choose when starting. Anyways, now I find myself to be transitioning into becoming an attending at an academic institution planning to do some outpt and some CL which was my dream job and I honestly am excited to see how I like it. Where's the problem you ask?... Well for a good while now I've been feeling down wondering if I made the right choice going into psych. I just have those days where I feel people don't respect us as true physicians and get tired of being confused with a psychologist. I feel like I'm not a core part of medicine (just an add on) and actually do miss some aspects of medicine (I guess this is why I'm in CL). I told myself if I'm still unhappy after 2 years then I may consider switching fields. I don't know exactly which field yet... And I'm thinking it's probably not easy to do, esp coming from psych background the more "medical" programs may be hesitant. I'm not sure if it's reassurance I'm looking for. But any comments or advice would be welcomed. Just sad to come all this way and feel like this. Also, another this is I went to med school imagining I would be doing missions work abroad and didn't think through that our services are not really used.
