is it possible for a psychiatrist to exclusively work in group therapy for couples/ marital therapy?

if so, what can such a psychiatrist expect as a realistic annual salary?

what do you mean? as in, no meds, just therapy and thats it? If so, then you'd charge by the session -but why go to med school then?

A psychiatrist can do pretty much whatever they want. I know of a psychiatrist affiliated with my hospital that does this, and is very successful.

Annual salary is as much as you allow it - depends if you're fee-for-service, take only insurances, work in a salaried clinic, etc., etc.

how does he accept payment: fee-for-service, insurance only, or is he in a salaried clinic?

how much would you ballpark he makes annually?

does he prescribe psychiatric medications as well for these couples?

what's his name?

He does all three, including the clinic

about 250k

On occasion...
what's his name?
I don't have his permission, nor do I normally give out people's names on the internet.

I'm with Solid on this one - Prom, why do all your posts ask questions like "how much does <insert specialty here> make?" and then always followed with "exactly how much work does that require" I just find it really strange that your posts are always asking about income potential and hours, there seems to be no drive, but that you're instead just doing this for the money. I understand people want to make money (I do ofcourse) it just seems thats all your posts ever consist of.

Care to elaborate on the reason why? Perhaps you would get more people responding if they understood why you always ask these questions.

:laugh:

You know, no one could afford to pay me enough to do "exclusive family therapy"... I would be suicidal with a plan in less than a week!

besides doing a PY-IV elective, how would i go about getting more training/experience in group and marital therapy?

are there any unofficial fellowship programs in this psychiatric subspecialty?
