Everything You Should Know About Becoming A Psychiatrist

April 04, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 206

Psychiatrists are the medical professionals not only detecting but also treating emotional and mental disorders in numerous patients. In most cases they are also authorized to prescribe medication and, depending on their sub-specialties, they can treat various patients with different problems, regardless of their nature.

One of the first things you need to know involves the differences between this profession and a psychologist. As the professionals working for psychiatrist recruitment agencies would explain, a psychologist can only detect the problems of an individual and usually give advice on how to fix them, without finding an exact solution. The difference in their education is also significant and should be taken into account before making your final decision.

If you want to make sure you do not forget about these differences, just remember the "-iatry" suffix, which links to "medical treatment". On the other hand "-logy" is strictly related to science, studying and analyzing in general. This is the reason why psychologists cannot prescribe any medication for their patients and if any patient requires complicated treatment for their problems these are not the professionals to look for. However, psychiatrist recruitment agencies recommend patients with milder issues to approach them for any kind of help.

Becoming a psychiatrist is not a simple process at all and it takes a lot of time to be able to exercise this profession. As you may see in the position advertised by psychiatrist recruitment agencies, it takes around 12 years of theoretical and practical study to get there. Despite the fact that a specific major is usually not required for this profession, you will need to have a degree that includes courses in biology, chemistry, math, physics and other fields. Once you have completed these steps you will be able to undergo a special medical school training program and get closer to your ideal career.

The experts working for psychiatrist recruitment agencies point out that the typical medical degree programs one would need to undergo usually take four years to complete, with plenty of laboratory instructions being provided during the first two years. Another important aspect you will need to take into consideration is the existence of the institution known as APA, which stands for American Psychiatric Association. This institution has imposed some rules and regulations for every person who wants to work in this field. For example, there are 3 years of residential training required before being able to sign up as a registered professional.

Last but not least, you should also know that there are plenty of psychiatrist recruitment agencies that could help you with all the information you require for working in this field. Contacting such an agency is easy, particularly since the Internet has grown considerably and all the information required can be easily found online.

While hiring a psychiatrist, a hospital or a medical practice must consider the services of psychiatry recruitment or psychiatrist recruitment companies.
