In brief: Training

After you graduate from medical school, and complete a psychiatric residency, you can become an addiction psychiatry fellow for a year of additional training.

In brief: First,

You need to go to medical school, then complete a residency in psychiatry.
Then it's on to an addiction psychiatry fellowship. I wish you the best!
