Is it worth it to become a Psychiatrist?
I am a high school junior who is interested in becoming a general or adolescent psychiatrist. I am taking two sciences courses both this year and next year (AP Biology, Genetics & Biotechnology this year; AP Physics B, Human Anatomy & Physiology next year). I am not taking an above-average math class (Precalculus), though I am making an A.
I am interested in becoming a psychiatrist because I feel I am able to connect with children and adults, and I truly feel I can help them.
Anyway, is it logical to go into Psychiatry? Is the salary high? Is it worth the many years of schooling?
