While I appreciate all of my TCPR subscribers, there’s one subscriber whom I value above all the others: my father. A psychiatrist who practices in the Bay Area, my father has been a loyal subscriber since Volume 1, Number 1, in January of 2003. For several years now, he has been asking me to publish an issue on how to retire from a psychiatric practice. “Great idea,” I’d say, but then I’d promptly forget about it, distracted by the allure of “sexier” topics like pharmacogenetics and bipolar disorder. Finally, he showed me a retirement worksheet that he had devised in preparation for the day (who knows when?) he decides to retire. Chastened, I decided it was time for that retirement issue, and I tracked down experts to help educate all of us about the nuts and bolts of retiring. I even partnered with the APA in updating retirement checklists, which they have graciously agreed to make available to our subscribers. Thanks, dad—but don’t retire too soon: you’ve got loads of patients still depending on you, and I know how much you love your job!
