Physicians interested in psychiatry are called psychiatrists (psychiatrists).
Psychiatric and psychological tests should allow the use of imagination and other neuropsychiatric techniques.
In practice, psychotropic medication and psychotherapy are the most commonly used treatment modalities, but different treatment models are also widely used.
Treatment includes questions about the functional disorders of the disease and the state of the disease for patients who are hospitalized and outpatient. The development of the psychiatry branch depends on interdisciplinary assistance, which explores sub-specialties and theoretical approaches.
Psychiatry, a branch of medicine, is intertwined with neuroscience, pharmacology, biochemistry, psychology and medicine. Unlike neurologists and other branches, psychiatrists have specialized in doctor-patient relationships and have been trained in different ways of using psychotherapy and other therapeutic communication techniques.
Psychiatrists also differentiate themselves from psychologists. After taking basic medical education as required for all other medical fields, they choose psychiatry. The psychiatrist who is a physician is competent and responsible for the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders.
