Q1: How did you become interested in this field?

A: Yes because of the long hours and the amount of responsibility that you have being in this profession.

A: It is illegal for hospitals to have a physician, and in California it is a style to have your own private practice.

A: NO, he said that he was always on call and when he was not on call he was reading.
Q7: If you could have changed something during your educational years to make it easier, what would it be?
A: He said that he would not have done anything different to make it easier because then it would make it him less deserving of it and it would be less gratifying in the end if he had taken a short cut.

A: Yes, the hours are not always bad but they never seem to end. Every 3rd week he is on call and may go 3 days sometimes without seeing his son.

Some of the topics covered include neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neurochemistry in human and other animals; neural mechanisms underlying sensory system function and perception; neural organization of behavior; development of the nervous system; and neural mechanisms of learning and memory.

Study mental processes and human behavior by observing, interpreting, and recording how people and other animals relate to one another and the environment. To do this, psychologists often look for patterns that will help them understand and predict behavior using scientific methods, principles, or procedures to test their ideas.
Work environments vary by subfield and place of employment. For example, clinical, school, and counseling psychologists in private practice frequently have their own offices and set their own hours. However, they usually offer evening and weekend hours to accommodate their clients. Those employed in hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare facilities may work shifts that include evenings and weekends, and those who work in schools and clinics generally work regular daytime hours. Most psychologists in government and industry have structured schedules.
A master's or doctoral degree (5 yr.), and a license, are required for most psychologists. A doctoral degree is usually required for independent practice as a psychologist. Psychologists with a Ph.D. or Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) qualify for a wide range of teaching, research, clinical, and counseling positions in universities, healthcare services, elementary and secondary schools, private industry, and government. Psychologists with a doctoral degree often work in clinical positions or in private practices, but they also sometimes teach, conduct research, or carry out administrative responsibilities.
Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Schools, Private Practices, Healthcare Facilities, Correctional Facilities, Law Enforcement, and Faculty Positions at High Schools & Colleges
The middle 50 percent earned between $48,700 and $82,800. (May 2008)
The lowest 10 percent earned less than $37,900. (May 2008)
The highest 10 percent earned more than $106,840. (May 2008)
Employment of psychologists is expected to grow as fast as average. Job prospects should be the best for people who have a doctoral degree from a leading university in an applied specialty, such as counseling or health, and those with a specialist or doctoral degree in school psychology. Master's degree holders in fields other than industrial-organizational psychology will face keen competition. Opportunities will be limited for bachelor's degree holders. Psychologists can improve their advancement opportunities by earning an advanced degree and by participation in continuing education. Many psychologists opt to start their own private practice after gaining experience working in the field.
