The psychiatrist who did my ECT specialized in ECT, but my understanding (as a layperson) is that (at least in Texas) any state-licensed physician can perform ECT.
"(a) Only a physician licensed to practice medicine in Texas may administer ECT and a physician may not delegate the act of administering the therapy. A nonphysician who administers ECT is considered to be practicing medicine in violation of the Medical Practice Act, Texas Civil Statutes, Article 4495b."
