Asked by Izzy

What age do psychiatrists tend to qualify university and medical school to then become an actual psychiatrist and start getting paid?

Hi Izzy, I found this info on the National Careers Service website that should hopefully be helpful. In order to become a psychiatrist, the NCS say that generally, you need: • a 5-year degree in medicine, recognised by the General Medical Council • a 2-year foundation programme of general training • 3 years of core training in psychiatry • 3 years of training in a speciality Please remember that there’s not just one strict path you have to follow to get the job you want!! There’s lots of ways to get there! Hope this helped!
