for a psychiatrist who opts for private practice straight out of residency, what are some common sources or ways of generating referrals, especially in rural locations with shortages in psychiatrists?

Local PCP groups - take 'em some sandwiches for lunch and they'll love you forever. Contacting other "overwhelmed" psychaitrists to collect their overflow (beware the high percentage of personality disordered patients).
