The Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) is the highest-level degree for those who wish to apply their knowledge as practicing clinicians. Graduates of this program may become licensed to diagnose and treat mental disorders, conduct psychological testing and complete psychological evaluations, and provide psychotherapy. While Ph.D. programs in psychology prepare graduates to work in a lab or academic setting, the Psy.D. focuses on active, real-world assessment and therapy skills.
