PGY2 here. Hope this isn't a stupid question , but it seems to me that forensic psychiatrists who don't choose to practice exclusively on inpatient forensics units seem to do Forensics work as part time . Is that correct? What does a "full schedule " look for a forensic psychiatrists in a private practice . Is it bread and butter normal outpatient work with the occasional forensics case or evaluation? How time consuming are those cases generally and how do you work around or with ur regular outpatient patients ? I've been posting alot more than recent trying to figure out if fellowship is for me or not. Are US imgs at a significant disadvantage in this career path (in terms of getting high paying cases as opposed to being accepted to fellowship). any insight would be appreciated .
