Everyone should read this article which was on the from page of the NYTimes today (5/10/2007). http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/10/health/10psyche.html?hp Psychiatrists are being influenced by the drug industry, according to the article, not only to prescibe certain psychiatric medications for children but to make atypical prescriptions (antipsychotics for an eating disorder) which put the clients at risk for other problems. Also, possibly, diagnosing children with disorders which fit the medication being pushed by the company. "In Minnesota, psychiatrists collected more money from drug makers from 2000 to 2005 than doctors in any other specialty. Total payments to individual psychiatrists ranged from $51 to more than $689,000, with a median of $1,750. Since the records are incomplete, these figures probably underestimate doctors actual incomes." So for those of you who are worried about money (a topic which comes up frequently on the SDN Psychology section) just get certified in one of teh states (which appears to be growing) which allows psychologists to prescribe medications. You can then pay back your graduate school loans, live comfortably, and use the left over money to take a course on the philosophy of ethics/morality at you local university.
