Four years of undergraduate study and I would expect at least 5 years to get the doctorate. A psychiatrist is able to prescribe medicine, like a proper doctor, so it would involve more education than becoming a psychologist or licensed counselor.

In the U.S. this requires 4 years of college (B.A. or B.S. degree), 4 years of medical school (M.D. or D.O.) and then 1 year internship and then 3 years of psychiatric training in hospitals and clinics. Thus, 12 years of education are required, after high school, in order to become a psychiatrist.
