If working as a psychiatrist sounds interesting to you, you
should start preparing for college and medical school while you are
still in high school. Do this by taking a college preparatory
curriculum and concentrating on math and science classes. Biology,
chemistry, and physics as well as algebra, geometry, and calculus
will all be helpful. You can also start learning about human
behavior by taking psychology, sociology, and history classes. In
addition, take English classes to develop your communication
skills-much of a psychiatrist's work involves speaking, listening,
and record keeping.
