  • Thank you for confirming this. I was sure I wanted to do a psychiatry residency after medical school until I read some residency programs’ websites a few days ago and realized they require using ECT in training. I just can’t bring myself to do that. I think I can have more of an impact training in family medicine and spreading the message to primary care doctors why they shouldn’t prescribe psychiatric drugs. While I am sure I’ll still face opposition from psychiatrists, at least I won’t be constantly fighting my own specialty’s professional associations as a family doctor.
