Hey all, DO Medical student here. Slightly interested in Psychiatry. But just concerned about the stress of the job.... How hard is it mentally..?? I mean how can you wake up everyday where you have to listen to peoples problems on a daily basis? I know psych docs have a high satisfaction rating, but how? Also, how competitive is it to get into psych as a DO student? I know its probably less competitive but just wondering how good my grades and board scores need to be. Also... how is the salary usually like east coast?? Is it possible to make 300+ if you work more than 40 hours???
