Like many I enjoy good lifestyle with a decent salary. Currently I am a 2nd year psychiatry resident at a univeristy program. I miss doing procedures and have explored the possibility of going into pain med which would allow me to do some procedures. Also being in psych i am use to med seekers trying to get extra benzo meds. Overall i have dealt with some degenerate pts and i think i could deal with the pain med seekers. my question is, what are the chances of a psychiatrist getting into a pain program that is procedure based. Are there certain programs that are psych friendly?
