Transcript: Treatments When diagnosing patients psychiatrists can order or perform a full range of medical laboratory and psychological tests which, combined with discussions with patients, help provide a picture of a patient’s physical and mental state Psychiatrist Leah Marty Elearning East February 8, 2016 Psychiatrists People seek help from psychiatrists for many reasons. The problems can be sudden such as a panic attack, freighting hallucinations, thoughts of suicide, self harming, or just severe depression HELPING OTHERS . If you are interested in becoming a psychiatrist, you now have all the information you need in order to reach your goals. Interacting with patients, learning about them, and learning about the world around you through them, making a difference if at least at that very point in time that you interact, and seeing them appreciates me spending the extra time. Seeing the human experience in all its glamor, delusions, grandiosity, sadness, happiness and fear... and seeing people recover through stabilization, knowing that you have saved lives of patients and people in the community. While it may take a long time, it may be worth it if you like to help others improve their lives by conquering their mental demons. As a psychiatrist you will be learning, studying, diagnosing, and treating mental disorders from a medical standpoint in order to enrich the lives of your patients.

After medical school you must complete a residency program, where you will work directly with patients under the supervision of a licensed psychiatric. Then to become licensed, these professionals must take the multi-step U.S medical Licensing Exam and also receive board certification through the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology The most significant advantage to being a psychiatrist is working in a profession devoted to helping others.
