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.
