Hi,
Good questions...a Psychologist is more of a social science type of career, you can study Psychology in 4 or 6 years and it is more behavior based and can be used in a variety of careers - sales, personnel, anything to do with people and behavior.
A Psychiatrist is a Medical Doctor which requires more education, training and licensing as an MD. Psychology is a big part of Psychiatry and Psychiatrists can also prescribe medications for their patients as well.

Good luck.
