REFLECTION 16 INTRODUCTION As part of my Careers Studies culminating assignment, I was told to prepare a research report detailing my plans for the future. In the following report, you’ll find the career path I’m working towards taking, the post-secondary education and training I’ll need to do so, and other information about the field of work that it is in. Such research will provide me with knowledge on how to get where I want to go, which include things I should start doing right now. JOB DESCRIPTION In the future, I want to be a psychiatrist. A psychiatrist is someone who diagnoses and helps treat those with psychiatric illnesses. They’re physicians, but instead of working around physical illnesses, they devote their study and their practice to the prevention and treatment of mental disorders. It’ll give me an opportunity to help those suffering from mental illness and learn more about abnormal psychology – a discipline I’ve found myself really interested in lately. The psychiatrists working in a clinic or their own office space, which is where I hope to be one day, are visited by patients who allow the psychiatrist to assess their problems and provide them with a way to cope. Psychiatrists are required to complete medical school, making them trained medical professionals that can prescribe medications or drug treatments. JOB DUTIES 3

A main duty of a psychiatrist is to help people cope with their mental illnesses or heal them. As mentioned earlier, they evaluate the struggles and stresses of their patients and after diagnosing them with a condition, they’re able to implement a medicinal treatment using their own discretion. In specific, the clinical treatment of a psychiatrist will begin by evaluating the patient. The intention is to dig deep into their mind and solve for what could be troubling them. Sometimes, it may mean interviewing the patient’s friends and family for further insight. There are many tests that may be run on the patient and with its results, an interpretation of the situation can be better formed. It is important to be sure of the diagnosis being made and the development of a treatment plan must be the right one for the patient. The psychiatrist plays a big role in a person’s life and it is imperative that they do their job as it should be. They’ll be treating the patient using psychotherapeutic and medicinal methods, however, their duties don’t end there.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
