Early Career Psychiatrists

Location, Location Location: The Role of Place in Career Development

Article Abstract

There are many differences between institutions, communities, and regions that can impact career development; obvious and subtle differences can shape the process. Importantly, academic institutions vary in terms of opportunities for mentorship and collaboration, emphasis on clinical care and research, and formal training opportunities. Location also impacts how psychiatry is practiced. Geographic locations differ in terms of local resources for mental health care, number of psychiatrists per capita, access to affordable health insurance, and percentage of the population that is uninsured.
