Real Psychiatry: Doctors in Action, produced by the American Psychiatric Association, Division of Diversity and Health Equity, is a video program created to provide information to medical students and others interested in the profession of psychiatry.

These psychiatrists, who represent different ethnicities, geographic regions and areas of professional focus, offer their perspectives and insights on why they chose psychiatry as a career and how their experiences as psychiatrists have enriched their lives.
