Collaborative opportunities: Working with nurse practitioners to meet the needs of underserved populations
from Psychiatric Times
Stop me if you have heard this before, but there are not enough psychiatrists to meet the current demands of our population. Research indicates that as many as 45,000 additional psychiatrists are needed. Couple that with residency slots remaining stagnant over the past decade and the fact that 50 percent of psychiatrists are over age 55, and it is clear that psychiatrists alone will not meet this daunting need.
