Susan Delphine’s Answer

Almost all psychiatrists work in different ways at different times in their career.

New psychiatrists often do hospital work all day, with some on-call responsibilities.

New psychiatrists with an office practice often must work a few days a week in public psychiatry (indigent work for an agency) until their practice builds up.

I am semi-retired and working three days a week. Due to the pandemic, I am doing tele-psychiatry exclusively. I am thinking of moving my tele-psychiatry practice to my home when my lease expires in a year.
