What is the end goal of a career psychiatrist as they continue to provide healthcare for their patients and does that goal have any moral worth?

I am a recent alumni from the University of California, Davis with a B.S. in Psychology looking for more information relating to the quality of person needed to needed to behavioral health and psychiatric medicine.

I believe this will be a highly individual answer. Just like in any field in medicine, you will be treating humans with the end goal for them to live with the highest quality of li[fe possible. Similarly, in psychiatry you will be treating the brain and how the disease process impact their lives. You will be faced with the same moral dilemmas as with any other field when other factor come into play, such as cultural, social, family, etc...
The goal is for you to find how the profession you choose gives you satisfaction. Good luck

dave’s Answer

of course it has moral worth as you will be prescribing medication and effecting patients lives!

whatever you do do NOT Overmedicate patients ....too much of that going on and I for one was directly affected by a psychiatrist who did not know what he was doing

the end goal is to get your patients to live as "normal" a life as possible

Its Not ALL about the meds

good luck!
