A psychiatrist is a medical physician who has specialized in MEDICAL treatment of mental disorders. It requires medical school and specialization in psychiatry.
A psychologist is a clinical worker who is qualified to treat mental issues through psychotherapy/counseling. A psychotherapist must receive, at a minimum, a masters degree in the subject, pass tests and be licensed in most states.
A psychiatrist is essentially a medical doctor (M.D.) with training in Psychology. So be prepared to become an M.D. on the way. (A psychologist specializes in Psychology.)
School psychologists are highly trained in both psychology and education. The simplest answer lies in the educational background required for each profession. A psychiatrist has a degree in medicine and a psychologist. I hope that helps you. Good luck to you.
how much education is needed to become a engineering psychologist
A psychologist is simply someone that graduated from college with a major in psychology. However, further education, such as a master's in psychology can be obtained. But, only 4 years in college completing a psychology major is necessary. A psychiatrist has to complete undergraduate studies-most majoring in psychology with a pre-medical program-and then go on to medical school. This is primarily because psychiatrists can prescribe medicine to their patients where psychologists cannot.
I'm not sure I understand the question. An MSW is a master's degree in social work, or in some cases referred to as social welfare. A psychiatrist is a physician (MD) with a specialty in psychiatry. A psychologist can have a master's, however most all practicing psychologists have a doctorate and are licensed. It is possible for an MSW to continue their education and pursue a doctorate in psychology. However, it would make little sense for a psychiatrist to become a psychologist.
The difference is the level of education. You can become a counselor several ways. For example, you can get a masters degree in social work and be a licensed clinical social worker, or get a masters degree in pastoral counseling or school counseling. A psychologist has a PhD. FYI, a psychiatrist is an MD.
Four years of undergraduate study and I would expect at least 5 years to get the doctorate. A psychiatrist is able to prescribe medicine, like a proper doctor, so it would involve more education than becoming a psychologist or licensed counselor.
