How to Succeed in Psychiatry: a Guide to Training and Practice
Andrea Fiorillo, Former Chairman of the EPA Early Career Psychiatrists Committee, Department of Psychiatry, University of Naples SUN, Italy
Iris T. Calliess, M.D, Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Hanover School of Medicine, Germany
Henning Sass, Medical Director, Chairman of the Board; Professor of Psychiatry, Hospital of the University of Technology, RWTH Aachen, Germany
The EPA Early Career Psychiatrists Committee, with the mentorship and guidance of Prof. Sass, EPA Chairman of the Committee on Education, produced its first book in January 2012. This is an invaluable first-hand experience about the day to day issues that arise in psychiatry, with guidance on training, research, job opportunities, avoiding stress through to continuing professional development.
Aimed at recently qualified psychiatrists or those looking to qualify soon, How to Succeed in Psychiatry is not a source of clinical information but a survival guide to help young colleagues through the first years of their practice.
The book opens with an overview of psychiatry training, describing the similarities and differences among various countries. Subsequent chapters address the opportunities for research and how to publish the results. Psychotherapy and community psychiatry each merit their own chapter on training. Next, the book guides the readers through the transition phase into a job, discussing job opportunities in both the public and private sectors and considering how to choose the best career for you. It reviews important general considerations, such as ethics, professionalism, leadership and management, how to avoid stress and burn out, and how to liaise with other specialties. The book closes with an account of the role of psychiatry associations and continuing professional development.
This book is authored by EPA early career psychiatrists committee and the European Federation of Psychiatric Trainees and includes 21 chapters, and 50 authors from 16 different countries.
