If you had the opportunity to interview a physician practicing in your projected specialty of choice, what are the most important questions you'd ask?

I'm interviewing a Psychiatrist tomorrow for a interviewing/counseling course that I have, and I am trying to think of good questions to ask that would really help me understand what it's like being a physician surrounded by so many stereotypes. Any thoughts appreciated!

Why psychiatry?
What kind of malpractice?
Hours/week?
Freudian? :)
Research opportunities?
Does he do more than just write prescriptions?
How accurate is Frasier? :)

Psychologist vs. psychiatrist?

Ask his opinion about applied behavior analysis and its future in mental health...

I'd probably ask: "Uh, what's that smell?" :rolleyes:

(Interested in EM.)

what was your app process like?
why psych?
what other specialties did you consider?
what was the back up plan to medicine?
do you have any regrets?
is it worth it?
are you happy?

Love the Freudian question. Totally going to ask that one! I'm also planning to ask him about the whole writing prescriptions thing. Why Psych will be my first question. Thanks for your responses!
