You may think a Denver psychiatrist has the easiest job of all, but they certainly do not, that is for sure.
Daily they have to deal with people with mental illnesses and this is definitely not easy to do. It is true this is the job they have chosen and you need to have a certain propensity towards such cases in order to follow this path, but still, from time to time, it can become overwhelming, for sure.
As you know, many of the psychiatrists are considered to be physicians, and physicians’ incomes have been rising in the past few years, even if the psychiatrists are not really at the top when it comes to their salary.
However, their average pay is far more than reasonable, as their annual income is most likely to be a six figures or more. You have to take into account that they can also get a bonus, depending on the field in which they are working.
The most important thing that affects a psychiatrist’s wage in the USA is their residency. This is followed by the company that employs them and, of course, by the level of experience.
Believe it or not, gender is also a factor influencing the salary of psychiatrists, and men tend to gain a little bit more than women, unfortunately.
