The difference between psychology and psychiatry is in schooling, licensing and the things the professional is allowed to do.

A psychiatrist goes to medical school and is licensed to prescribe medicine. He or she generally takes referrals from psychologists to describe medicine, works in hospitals and might specialize in difficult cases.

A psychologist generally earns a Masters degree or a PhD, but is not trained or licensed to prescribe medicine. They generally practice talk therapy.
