Psychology Vs Psychiatry
by: David

Hi Dimitris

A common misconception about psychology is that it is very similar, if not synonymous with psychiatry. It is not. Psychiatry is a distinct medical specialism (all psychiatrists have a medical degree) that is fundamentally concerned with mental disorder. Psychology has a much broader focus and is not inextricably linked to the concept of mental illness.
