Psychiatry is a medical specialty practiced by physicians with an M.D. or D.O. degree. Psychiatrists treat patients with mental, emotional, or behavioral disorders. Psychiatrists may use therapy, medication, hospitalization, or a combination of these treatment options in the care of their patients. Psychology is not a medical specialty and should not be confused with psychiatry.
