In the spirit of the family doctor income post below, I was curious about the realistic earnings of Psychiatrists.
Of course this field shouldn't be entered with a focus on bottom lines but it would be a shame if the income potential was underplayed.
I am interested in the field and have heard from residents that there are opportunities for high income potential that aren't well known at the preclerk level.
If possible any information regarding yearly take-home in the General Psychiatry practices, subspecialties/fellowships and corresponding hours of work would be much appreciated.
Facets such as being a student supervisor, call shifts, split inpatient/outpatient or solely inpatient solely outpatient settings could be expanded on if there is some knowledge there.
Also, what are the private practice models in Canada and how they would influence practice? Although geography would impact income, if we thought broadly by each province and urban vs smaller city vs town, could we group together the financial information on this topic in this thread?
Thanks so much for any and all help!
