Michelle’s Answer

It's actually 12 years total. 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school and 4 years of psychiatric residency. Every year of the 12 is different from the last so it seems to go faster than it sounds.

Jorge’s Answer

You'll have to attend medical school which is 4 years plus the time to do your residency in psychiatry, another 2-3 years. Before medical school you'll need to have completed an undergraduate degree, 4 years. So in total it's about 10+ years after high school.
