Hello




Thank you for choosing Mera career guide and writing to us.




I can list down the eligibility criteria for being a psychiatrist in India but before that I would like to advice you about the types of courses a Psychiatric study involves. They are Clinical Psychology, Psychiatry physician, Psychiatric nursing, Psychiatric Social work, Psychological medicine and Psychiatric medical and social psychology.







The eligibility req are as follows.

That is, a tenth standard with minimum first class pass, a twelfth standard with a minimum first class pass, a three year Bachelor degree in Psychology with min first class, a two year Masters degree in Clinical Psychology with a minimum first class.
