Well. I won't get into too much of an argument here. But, we can't find anyone to take over my wife's practice because the pay is just not good enough in the rural area where we live. I hope you consider Psychiatry as a specialty. The shortages are becoming a serious issue in many parts of the country. But, don't do it because it is "laid back". My wife almost lived at the hospital for the first twenty years of our marriage. A good shrink is there for her patients 24/7 and I cannot tell you how many nights I was awakened by my wife talking a patient through a crisis.
