What does an Associate Psychiatrist do?
Psychiatrists evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients with mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. They conduct thorough psychiatric evaluations, develop treatment plans, prescribe medication, and evaluate treatment results. Psychiatrists can work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, private practices, clinics, and nursing homes.
Psychiatrists are required to complete extensive education. Psychiatrists must have a medical degree from an accredited medical school, complete a residency program in psychiatry, be board certified in psychiatry, and be licensed to practice medicine in the state of practice. Licensure requirements vary by state, but usually involve taking an exam that specifically includes regulations unique to the state of practice. The best psychiatrists are very perceptive, have strong listening skills, and are excellent critical thinkers.
