Question: What is the difference between Forensic Psychiatry and Psychology? I am currently enrolled in school studying for my B.S. in Psychology, and I really don't know what career path I'd like to take. Im narrowing it down to the Forensic field, but there are some differences in Psychology and Psychiatry. If you are either a FORENSIC Psychologist or FORENSIC Psychiatrist, your experiences and job description would be greatly appreciated.

Answer: a psychiatrist is a medically trained doctor, a psychologist isn't. So you couldn't be a forensic psychiatrist without studying medicine
