Kartik’s Answer

Hey Andrew ,

By general rule.
You should have science related subject specifically biology at school level

Second , you will need MBBS( Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery) which is 4-6 degree (includes 1 year supervised training )

Third , you will need MD( Medical doctor ) with specialisation in psychiatry which takes 4-5 years .

And you are good to go to practice as psychiatrist!!

You may also want to check about "how to be neurologist" as there is quite overlap of work with psychiatry in practice


Note: years of training and licensing varies from place to place

Susan Delphine’s Answer

In high school, be sure to take Biology, Chemistry and Physics, and try for the highest A in each one. Take Calculus and Psychology. If you like all of these, you are well on your way to becoming a psychiatrist. In college, try for the highest A in every course you take. GPA counts a lot.

M.’s Answer

To become a psychiatrist, you need to complete medical school and then psychiatry residency training. The pathway and requirements vary from country to country, In the US, it involves 4 years in college, 4 in medical school, and then 4 years of residency. A psychiatrist needs a good base knowledge related to science but also needs to be interested in understanding the human being in its totality, including its historical and sociocultural context.
