Difference Between Psychiatrists and Psychologists

Psychiatrists are often confused with Psychologists. Please note that Psychiatrists are medical doctors while psychologists are not. Psychiatrists can prescribe medication while psychologists can’t. Psychiatrists can also admit people to hospitals, which psychologists can’t do. Psychologists mainly focus on providing talk therapy to patients.
