How to Become a Child Psychiatrist

To work as a child psychiatrist, you must complete medical school and earn a degree. After medical school, you must complete a residency in general psychiatry followed by additional training in child and adolescent psychiatry or in a residency program which integrates adult and child psychiatry training. In residency, you learn about properly evaluating, diagnosing, and treating children and implementing applied behavioral analysis (ABA) to improve learning issues associated with autism, bipolar disorder, and other disorders. Become board-certified by completing the requirements of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN).

What is the ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimate?

To help candidates find their perfect job at their desired pay rate, ZipRecruiter estimates the compensation range for job listings where the employer does not state a pay range.

ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimates are not verified by the employer posting the job, and the actual compensation range for an advertised position may vary, perhaps considerably, from the estimated range.
