I'm aspiring medical school though I am only twelve and have

researched colleges. I suggest that you consult with a college

planner or at least do research before pursuing psychiatry because

it can also affect one's personal mental health or private life.

talking to people with disturbing thoughts can often make an

impacts on a person. But if you really want to know it is 4 years

of basic college and probably you'll want to major in something to

do with the studies of human behavior or social interaction. After

that you'd have to endure an even more challenging 2-3 years of

neurological medical school then residency to either a mental

health ward or private psychiatric practicing doctor. 16 years
