Clinical Psychology Jobs

Clinical Psychology Jobs are the largest specialty within the psychology field.  Clinical psychologists work in a variety of settings, including private practices, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, clinics and schools.  They assess, diagnose and treat mental, emotional and behavioral disorders, ranging from short term crisis intervention to chronic conditions like schizophrenia and depression.  Some clinical psychologists work in medical schools and universities, where they train graduate students in the field of mental health and behavioral medicine.

People in clinical psychology jobs work closely with medical doctors regarding treatment, especially when that treatment includes medication.  Typically, clinical psychologists are not licensed to prescribe medication, only medical doctors, including psychiatrists, can prescribe medication.  There are also several states that allow trained clinical psychologists to prescribe certain medications.
