Prospects

Educational institutions often employ psychologists in positions other than teaching, such as counseling, testing, research, and administration. The government often employs psychologists as healthcare practitioners to work in public hospitals, clinics and other settings. Those who work in healthcare often work in the offices of mental health practitioners, physicians, outpatient mental health and substance abuse centers and private hospitals. After several years of experience, some psychologists, usually those with doctoral degrees, can enter private practice or set up private research or consulting firms. In addition to the previously mentioned jobs, many psychologists held faculty positions at colleges and universities and as high school psychology teachers.
