I am only a pre med, but my ultimate goal is psychiatry. I am so happy to see a psychiatry thread here on mommd. Hopefully we can keep this going and get more psych threads fired up. Great luck to all interested in psych
psych is definitely more liveable then many specialities, i don't think i realized how important this would be to me when i chose psych residency. i like having a life! (I'm not saying surgeons don't have lives, it just wasn't the path for me). psych is pretty hard and rigorous compared to non-MD jobs, but for me has been pretty manageable.
