Professional training

After completion of the Doctor of Medicine and after working in the public hospital system for two years (internship and residency), doctors interested in becoming a psychiatrist can apply to the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists to undertake further training and ultimately receive Fellowship which normally takes at least five years of study while working as a doctor.
