Psychologists with doctoral degrees receive one of the highest levels of education of all health care professionals, spending an average of seven years in education and training after they receive their undergraduate degrees. In addition to their rigorous academic training, psychologists also complete 4-6 years’ supervised clinical experience including internship and a post-doctoral residency. The length and intensity of training, as well as ability to conduct psychological assessments, distinguishes psychologists from other mental health professionals such as Social Workers and Mental Health Clinicians. In contrast, Psychiatrists have a medical degree and proscribe medication to treat mental illness.
