Jaimee’s Answer

Embarking on the journey to become a psychiatrist is a rewarding and fulfilling endeavor. It all starts with choosing a pre-medical major, which is your stepping stone towards medical school. Many institutions offer degrees tailored specifically for those with a keen interest in medical school. The road to becoming a psychiatrist is approximately 12 years post-high school, but remember, every step is a step closer to your dream. This includes a 4-year undergraduate pre-medical degree, another 4 years in medical school, and a final 4-year residency in psychiatry.


Best of luck!
