After earning a Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology and then passing the required licensing exams, an individual can diagnose and treat mental disorders including administering evaluations, conducting psychological tests, and providing psychotherapy services.
Individuals with a Psy.D. can work in a wide variety of settings including hospitals, mental health clinics, government offices, schools, and college/university settings. Some professionals choose to open their own psychotherapy practice or work as consultants for private corporations.
