The Future of Psychiatry: Early Career Psychiatrists
Early career psychiatrists (ECPs) are defined as psychiatry trainees and psychiatrists in their first 7 years since finishing specialty training in their respective home countries. Although this may be a critical moment in the careers of new psychiatrists, it also can be an important period for development and achievement. The goal of this chapter is to briefly state the many possible areas of action for early career psychiatrists, to increase awareness of their current importance, and to stress their crucial role in the future of psychiatry.
