Zuelke presentation

  1. 1. Psychiatrist<br />Amanda Zuelke<br />
  2. 2. Psychiatrist Doctor<br />Psychiatrists treat many different kinds of problems. Some of the most common are depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and addictions. Other problems include schizophrenia and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Schizophrenics may suffer from paranoia, delusions, or hallucinations. People with obsessive-compulsive disorder feel compelled to perform time-consuming and disruptive rituals like washing their hands constantly or repeating certain phrases. <br />
  3. 3. Job description <br />Psychiatrists are specially trained doctors who diagnose and treat people with mental, emotional disorders and diagnose problems such as depression, eating disorders, and schizophrenia. I chose this career because I think its really cool to help people, and also psychiatry is really hard but in the long run worth it.<br />
  4. 4. Working Conditions <br />Work for general or psychiatric hospitals, clinics, and research centers. Some psychiatrists are self-employed. Some work closely with family doctors, social workers, and nurses. They work 60 hours a week, and may be on call when not working. The work can be stressful and emotionally draining <br />
  5. 5. Education<br />You need to complete a bachelor’s degree(4 years) and medical school(4 years). It is not uncommon for people to apply to medical school 2 years in a row before being accepted. While in medical school, you concentrate your electives on psychiatry. After completing medical school, you are a doctor, but you still have to do a period of on-the-job training called a residency. The residency period for psychiatrists is usually 4 years. At the end of your residency, you have to pass a licensing exam to practice psychiatry in your state. Some psychiatrists choose to specialize in a sub-field, such as child and adolescent psychiatry or forensic psychiatry. Specialization requires an additional 1 to 2 years of training.<br />
  6. 6. Job Outlook/Employment<br />The job outlook is up 2.6%<br />
  7. 7. Earnings<br />Most licensed psychiatrists earn between $140,000 and $300,000 a year. Some high-profile psychiatrists can make more than $300,000 a year<br />
  8. 8. Use of technology<br />New technology is used every day, some of it includes how they conduct their research, how they file papers, and even how they send prescriptions in.<br />
  9. 9. Summary<br />Yes, this career is still very appealing to me. Because I like they challenge it gives and also that you never know what is going to happen the next day. It fits my personality type perfect. I’m a very friendly and love helping people out when I can. <br />
