How do you become a forensic psychiatrist?

- 4 years in college (with a major of your choice, along with plenty of science related courses to fulfill all requirements set by medical schools)

- 4 years in medical school. where you must receive either a M.D. or O.D. Degree

- 4 years of residency for psychiatry (sort of like internship, working under supervision, getting paid, but without the actual ''psychiatrist'' title

- pass test, receive licence

- 1 year in forensic psychiatry (a subspecialty of psychiatry) fellowship.

- you are now a forensic psychiatrist

bare in mind, there is a difference between a forensic psychiatrist and a forensic psychologist. including a big difference in what is required to become on educationally. being a psychiatrist takes more years, because a psychiatrist IS a doctor.
