Psychiatrist Education Requirements

The educational requirements for becoming a psychiatrist are very similar to those of becoming a doctor.  You must complete a four-year undergrad program, including the pre-requisites for med school.  Then you must go to a four-year medical school, and finally finish by doing a residency that will typically last four to six years.

One must keep in mind that a psychiatrist is different than a psycologist.  A psychiatrist can perscribe medication, whereas a psycologist can only talk to you about your issues.
