    Which country do you want to practice in? As far as I know your MBBS is equivalent to the MD for all medical/surgical fields including psychiatry as long as you pass the board certification tests for that specific country. In the US, you just take the USMLE and do your internship + psych residency and voila, you're a psychiatrist.
