Assuming one has passed his/her 3 part Medical boards after the first year of the residency, one can begin practicing medicine, but until the psychiatric residency is complete and the psychiatric board exam is passed, one cannot be a psychiatrist.
After one has passed one's psychiatric board exam, one is now, officially, a psychiatrist, and has the option of continuing their education, for example, to become a psychoanalyst. The vast majority do not do so, however. Most psychiatrists spend the rest of their profession writing prescriptions for antidepressant, antianxiety, and mood stabilizing, and anti-psychotic medications. The average visit to a psychiatrist lasts between 5 - 10 minutes.
People often ask, "what is the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist in training." Psychologists obtain a BA (usually - but not always- in Psychology), then go to a five year graduate program that focuses exclusively on behavioral science. They take in-depth classes that provide training in psychotherapy and behavior modification. Classes include psychopharmacology, but except for New Mexico and Louisiana, they cannot prescribe medications. They are the only profession legally allowed to administer psychological exams, such as IQ and personality tests. Before they can be licensed, they need to obtain between approximately three years of hands-on training, supervised by a licensed psychologist. It takes the average psychologist, after their BA, to become licensed, around 7 - 8 years.
A psychiatrist is medical physician with specialized training in mental health medications.
A psychologist is a behavioral doctor, with specialized training in psychotherapy.
A psychiatrist is essentially a medical doctor (M.D.) with training in Psychology. So be prepared to become an M.D. on the way. (A psychologist specializes in Psychology.)
