    I wanted to wish our psychiatry crowd here at SDN a Happy and Healthy New Year.

    For many of us, whether we're in med school, an intern, resident, or even fellow, the start of the new year means you've reached a milestone on the 'academic' calendar. I know that I'm looking forward to finishing my PGY-V fellow year and get out into the "real world." To all you others out there looking to push the clock forward. I can tell you that you have 6 months left. Six months till you're in med school, or 6 months till you hit clerkships, or 6 months till you're no longer an intern, or 6 months till your call schedule lightens, or 6 months till you start making real money and getting out there and doing what we do best - seeing psychiatric patients and helping out as best we can.

    Good luck to all of us. We're a special and select group that sees a special and select (and interesting) group of patients.

    See you all next year!

    agree with above.

    I have 6 days left of primary care -- for the rest of residency -- and have never been happier to have chosen psychiatry. It makes me smile to think I'll never have to manage a kid's asthma exacerbation or some 60 year old's COPD+DM2+CHF+DLD who doesn't take his medicines and eats McD's 4 times a day.

    Go psychiatry! :p

    Finishing PGY-I is a good feeling. You're done with IM and all those calls.

    Woo hoo! For so long I've been looking forward to 2009, my graduation year. I just applied for graduation today, so the end is finally in sight. At the same time, I'm starting to realize the reality of what lies next. Happy New Year everyone!
