Psychiatrists have a number of appointments throughout the day and they have to schedule them well. The day generally starts early and is quite hectic most of the times. They have to provide Electroconvulsive Therapy to the patients. After the treatment patients interact with psychiatrists. These meetings generally extend to half an hour. Sometimes they arrange the meetings in groups. Most of the times, they feel extremely happy which makes the psychiatrist extremely satisfied with their work.

They find time to read about the psychiatry and do the research. This is important because they have to develop new practices and methodologies. This learning adds a lot of value in the long terms. The day is generally quite busy and appointments consume most of the times.

Psychiatrists are those specialised doctors who treat persons suffering from Mental illnesses or persons having  deviant thought processes.

A typical day in the life of psychiatrist  consist of

1 Meetings with patients,who may be severly depressed,suicidal, schizophrenic  or paranoid.

Most of the time they are intelligent people..

2 Due to increased stress and strains in life, more and more people are referring to them for treatment..People from all age group refer to them.

3 Psychiatrists may  specialize their work in drug deaddiction,child psychiatry etc. 

4 As rightly said that the psychiatrist administer give ECT to severve patients to calm them down.

5 The duration of  treatment offererd to patients is  longer as compared to other professions and each patient need more time in each session with the doctor,as pschotherepay or counseling are time consuming.

It can be a bit exhaustive at times.
