  • Frequent Posters- Who R U and What do U do.

    Edit: if you want to be added to the list or share your info, post on the thread or PM me.

    Edit: I am updating this as people post.

    Despite being a semi frequent poster, I don't really know what any of you guys do, or anything about you so I thought it would be interesting and useful to know something maybe age range, field of practice, general location etc etc.

      Mid 40s. Pacific Northwest suburbs. I work for a regional vertically integrated health care system. Psychiatrist... Obviously! I do 1/3 outpatient, 1/3 inpatient, and 1/3 system leadership. We are also a teaching site for a medical school and I teach third year med students a few weeks a year. I have been at the same job since I finished residency. Job has been very good to me. Community is terrific. I really enjoy my work, even the tough parts.

      My specialties/interests are neuropsychiatry, medically complex psych patients, schizophrenia, and refractory bipolar disorder, but I also treat addiction (waivered), personality disorders, neuroses, and do existential and CB and MI therapies. It's a very broad practice, keeps me from getting bored.

        Age 57, practicing general AP/CP pathology and cytopathology in Nebraska at a community hospital. I love to travel, read, garden, and I grow orchids - and when I am not exhausted, I enjoy amateur astronomy (but that hobby doesn't mix well with getting up early, alas).

          Age 63. Retired for one year. Was OB/GYN. Owned my practice for most of my career. I read, garden, dog walk, do yoga, paint and draw.

            Mid 30s, EM, middle of the country. I enjoy being active and was a once aspiring professional athlete. Luckily that dream came crashing down very early on and was not a surprise to anyone. 2006 Time Person of the Year recipient. Wife and I are expecting our first child this winter so we've been busy making sure we're prepared for that.

                    Mid 30s- radiologist- neuroradiology fellowship trained, which is what I do about 50% of the time at work. In the lower midwest (I think our town has more Arkansas sentiments). Enjoy working out, cooking, reading, and figuring out life. Also expecting first biological child early next year.

                      With your 'nick' it's not hard to guess you are a pathologist.

                        I think with my latest birthday I have to grudgingly accept that I've moved from mid to late 30s. Still feel like I struggle with basic adulting despite killing it financially. Inpatient psychiatrist in WCI country. From the Southeast, which is where my immediate family still is. Love outdoors and traveling. Signed up for Level 1 avalanche certification in January.

                        Left employment last year and started the odyssey of being a freelance independent contractor. Has its pros and cons but overall a win I'd say. I just signed on for a six month assignment that's 7 on, 7 off, includes ECT. My plan is to work this winter and then just catch up on vacations for 6-9 months if that's even possible in 2021.

                        I was all aboard the FIRE train for a while but realized eventually I needed something productive and meaningful to do regardless of the need for money. I've also realized that while medicine and psychiatry have been good to me, it does not satisfy my intellectual curiosity enough, nor is it an adequate lifestyle fit for it to be a sustainable career for the next 25-30 years. So I've been poking around and actually started the CFP education course, which has been fairly informative. Whether that can eventually translate to an encore career, especially for someone who is averse to working full time and is used to doing things their own way, is an entirely open question. It always helps to remember that life is a marathon and not a sprint.

                              Age 55 - haven't updated my picture in 25 years. I live in Ann Arbor and outside of having fun making light-hearted sarcastic comments with you, I love being an advisor and don't ever plan to retire. We just had our first son and I love everything related to Michigan sports. Trying to work on more hobbies outside of work, adjusting to being a dad and being a sports fan
