Psychologist is a Ph.D. in clinical or counseling psychology or Psy.D. They typically see clients in in/out-patient settings and don`t write prescriptions. Most Psyc research comes from Ph.D. Clinical.

Actually, no. Both have to get a Ph.D/Psy D. The only actual difference is the psychologist focuses more on general psychology and less on neuroscience. The psychiatrist its the other way around. The psychiatrist can dispense medication but not provide much therapy, the psychologist provides psychotherapy.
Wrong way round, Einstein.
Not really. It was just an interesting aside into what `production` means in the context of work.
Is it hell. If it was that easy, they`d just automate it. A set of scales, a computer and a robot, job done.
Do you think people spend 13 years training to be able to weigh someone and look up the corresponding dosage on a chart?
You haven`t even got the right drug. You haven`t even got the right spelling for that drug, even though it`s one of the best known drugs in the world.
You also haven`t got a clue.
It`s a medical speciality, requiring a minimum of 13 years training in the UK (6 years to qualify as a doctor + 2 years training in anaesthetology + 5 years supervision, effectively an apprenticeship).
They work in pain management and intensive care as well as what they`re best known for - administering and maintaining anaesthesia. They`re the people who make sure that you`re so close to dead during surgery that you have no idea you`re being cut open...and make sure that you don`t go very slightly further and become dead. It`s a very difficult job. Those 13 years of training aren`t mandatory just for laughs.
Agreed. I can`t make any sense out of it.
Exactly what I thought. Either or, I guess I want to be a securities trader
Although, from my guesses, I don`t think I`d ever want that job.
If you had any idea what they need to know for exams, how much of it they forget, and how much of that knowledge is actually used in practice, you wouldn`t care less what their grades were as long as they save your ass and don`t kill you.
I don`t want to overstate that. Those are some damn good stories. My only point was that doctors are people, not gods, and it was a painful lesson on par with learning that my parents were fallible like any other human being.
I think I have ass cancer. I goto the doctor. He confirms I don`t have ass cancer. He didn`t produce anything except mental satisfaction, as the truth was I never had cancer. That will be $8435 I will happily pay to receive nothing in return.
I wasn`t necessarily knocking the talking about the s*it you see part. Actually, I`m not knocking anything.
But when my hip needs replacing, I`ll take the detached A student non-nice individual over the compassionate B student anyday.
When other people use drugs to induce my body to forgo consciousness and ignore the pierce of the scalpel, yes please be as educated as possible.
What is weird is for every anesthesiologist, there was that first time the doctor went solo, and held a life in his or her hands. ***Shiver***
Being a doctor doesn`t mean you are more intelligent. It means you`ve studied one thing continuously for 8 years under supervision. What scares me is that doctors go home and laugh with each other about their more ridiculous cases. Doctors are the people I went to high-school with, and college with, smoked pot with.
What scares me is how the profession is truly regimented by merit. As in, the crappy doctors get the crappy work. As in, I might go to a hospital and get the "C" student for a few hours before Mr. "A" student answers the page.
I`m afraid to die because of other people who will hold my life in their hand, yet I am powerless to do anything about it.
Under Obamacare, the government will require everyone to buy health insurance. If you are poor enough to not afford it, the government will subsidize. Medicaid benefits ($$$ for poor people`s healthcare) will be cut to pay for the subsidies.
Under Obamacare, doctors in general will have more patients because every person will have health coverage, so they won`t wait to check out that painful lump.
So, they`re more likely to kill me?
The reduction in ads in quite deliberate. Fancylad takes copious amount of sh*t everyday from regular users over ads, reposts, wrongly attributed content, spammers, typographic errors in post descriptions, content that`s "older than the internet", stealing from other websites (that one always makes me lol), etc etc.
On the ads, fancylad fights daily with the corporate machine that wants to turn this place into a money-grubbing website dripping with ads, spyware, subscription fees, and selling on users` account details to spam email listings for profit. Credit where credit`s due, fancy gives a a daily big middle finger to the corporate whores, despite the fact it would be easier to roll over and take it up the ass, and does a damn fine job of keeping I-A-B, I-A-B.
I know I`ll get accused of brown-nosing,but I`m just getting a friend`s back, who works damn hard for you guys.
You sir, are an idiot. First off, anesthesiologist is spelled wrong, along with morphine.
Secondly, its a lot more than giving someone a specific amount of medicine according to their weight. Anesthesiologists sit through surgeries, making sure that the patient is effectively kept under without any problems arising during the surgery (i.e. heart stops). They`re among the top of the list when it comes to malpractice lawsuits.

Not bad for doing a job that I basically consider a hobby...
True, but is that producing something? Protection rather than production, I think. That was the original point - do they produce something? - and I think MauserTM was thinking of babies.
I recall one report of a doctor who hadn`t been out the hospital for a week. A full week. They were working so many hours that it didn`t make sense to go home. They just slept in the staff area as and when they could. This was said to be fairly common.
I`ll be putting my PHD in Zoology to good use!
I don`t know what it`s like in the USA, but over here anaesthetists train for 7 years *after* completing 6 years of medical training. No typos - 13 years training. They`re highly specialised doctors.
Adminstering anaesthetics, especially a general, is very far indeed from just injecting some stuff in someone.
The anaesthetist is present and working throughout the op and a while afterwards. They don`t just inject and go.
There`s a pretty thin line between successful general anaesthesia and death. If you`re deeply unconscious enough to not know surgery is happening on you, you`re not very far from dead. The anaesthetist keeps you balanced on that line before, during and after the op.
They`re also intensive care specialists.
They literally work 24/7. When they aren`t working all night at the hospital, they are on-call and get called in a 3 AM to do emergency cases.
If you really want to supplement your income and stash some nuts for a rainy day, learn to E-Trade. I boosted my income last year with self served trades.
OK. I`ll bite: Why would you not be qualified for any of these careers?
God I`m underpaid compared to my peers, bugger me...!
Most definitely, sir.
The infographic has a stupid format and ordering, but if you take a moment to look at it and read the legend, it`s not all that bad...
That`s because, that would be the top pay. You have to look at the number on the left, the median. In the College Professor`s case, it`s about $70,000
