Successful Psychiatric Practice: Current Dilemmas, Choices, and Solutions explores the current difficulties in maintaining a successful psychiatric practice. Issues include increasing third-party oversight, reduced reimbursement, increased administrative burdens, competition from nonmedical mental health practitioners, and the rapidly expanding knowledge base. This book presents first-person accounts of psychiatrists who have maintained successful and rewarding practices in the face of changing conditions and difficulties. Medical students contemplating careers in psychiatry, residents preparing to enter psychiatric practice, and psychiatrists considering changing their present mode of work will find this book extremely helpful. The authors describe general psychiatric practice in urban, small-city, and rural settings. They also depict solo practice, partnerships, group practice in an HMO, and hospital-staff practice. Chapters focus on subspecialty practices of child psychiatry, geriatric psychiatry, psychoanalysis, psychopharmacology, consultation-liaison psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, and forensic psychiatry. The authors discuss changes, dilemmas, and trends in psychiatric practice and their experiences and recommendations.
