Susan Delphine’s Answer

There is a lot to it. Some of it tedious, like getting on insurance panels, if you go that route.
Ideally, you will find a mentor to help you, perhaps from your training program, practicing near your new office.
A fellow psychiatrist mentored me when I opened my solo practice 20 years ago.
Like him, I am cash only. 50% of psychiatrists work this way now.
Like him, I had a two day a week side gig doing public psychiatry until I was making enough thru my new practice.
Right now, almost all of us are doing telemedicine, which you would likely do at your side gig, also.
