Hi,


Psychiatrist are Doctors who pursue Psychiatry as their specialization. It is important to remember that to become a Psychiatrist one needs to pursue 12th from Science Stream with Physics, Chemistry and Biology as their compulsory subjects.
After successfully completing their they will have to undertake the Medical Exam and clear it and secure a seat to do MBBS.
After doing their MBBS the student will have to do an MD with a specialization in Psychiatry.

Remember that a Psychiatrist is a specialized Doctor who deals with people suffering from Psychological Disorders.

His main Job is of Diagnosis of Disorder after which he prescribes medicines to the patients.

He is not trained to perform Therapy with his patients. This is done by a Clinical Psychologist who is trained in Diagnosis of a disorder. Psychologist after the diagnosis refers the client for medication to a Psychiatrist and later counsel the patient and if necessary use Therapeutic procedures to help their client lead a healthy and a Balanced life.

A psychiatrist can also learn therapies to help their patients.

Many a times people get confuse between a Psychiatrist and a Psychologist. and think that it is one and the same thing. But it is important to remember that they are different professionals. Even thought they work with the same client but at different levels and also their orientation of work is also very different.

To become a Clinical Psychologist one has to do a graduation in Psychology and also you can be from any stream for doing a graduation in Psychology as well. Then do your Masters in Psychology. After completion of ones Masters one is suppose to do an M.Phil in clinical Psychology form an institute that is approved from Rehabilitation Council of India. After this you become a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and practice in Hospital or Clinics.

In all whatever career you choose be it Psychiatry or Psychology you will have to decide it much before in your career and take the right path.

Best Wishes!
