Good day,

Thank you for reaching Mera Careerguide.com

To Answer your question, There are vast updates about how the role of Psychiatrist has changed over the years.

Beloware fewof my thoughts which could help you understand the progress:

Psychaitry is one of the oldest specialty areas. The Professional organization known as the American Psychiatry Association(APA) has been existence for over 150 years.

  • Just as the number of Physician jobs is expected to grow in the next five years. So, is the number of Psychiatry jobs as well.
  • With Overall growth in physician employment of approximately 20% over the next decade according to US Bureau of labor Statistics, the number of Psychiatry positions may increase by over 6000 by 2014.
  • Given the difficulty of filling many Psychiatry residency positions, this may mean an increased reliance on foriegn medical graduates to fill the increasing demand for Psychiatrists.

This Number assume that growth is constant across all medical disciplines. However, as the baby boomer population ages the number of Psychaitric and neuro degenrative disorders is expected to increase disproportionately. This means that Psychiatry practices are lilkely to see faster growth than many other physician practices.

You can go through the below link to get a detailed knowledge about the growth and history of Psychiatry from earlier days and in the different Era's:

Psychiatrist

  • The last two decades in India have seen an explosion in the knowledge base of the neurosciences, epidemiology and therapeutics.
  • There has also been a parallel growth in interdiciplinary linkages, which support integrated socially and culturally appropriate approaches to mental health interventions.
  • It is sometimes difficult for contemporary practitioners to fully comprehend the wide ranging challenges that confronted mental health professional in the period following India' rel="nofollow"s independence. However, it is important to remember that the foundations for the current knowledge base were laid during those early years.

Also, The bureau of labor Statistics has pegged annual growth in Psychiatry at 14-20% through 2016. Our own growth reflected that data with an increase of roughly 20% from 2009 - 2010. that growth continues as seen an increase in job written in the 4th quarter of 2010 and the beginning of 2011.

  • For some candidates the increased demand has meant going on more interviews and receiving more offers than in previous years. In response employers have been more creative with loan repayment, sign on bonuses, PTO, stipends and other incentives. Even annual base compensation for Psychiatrists, something that hopsitals are historically reluctant to increase has begun to rise.

Ultimately, the increased demand means that there are more opportunities availble to Psychiatrists but those opportunities may not be in the location or be the practice seeting that candidates were expecting. Maintaining an open mind during the Job search process is essential for candidates because there is still a competitive candidate pool. Prioritizing needs, specifically, Location, Geopgraphy and practice style and determining how much flexibility one has with each of those factors will help navigate the expanding market.
