Who ever wrote this must not have a thesarus as corporeal and physical mean the same thing so what is this sentence suppose to mean? Linda Hammer Burns, Ph.D. Licensed Psychologist University of Minnesota

I removed the portion about medical psychology having to do with prescribing. The term medical psychology has been around a long time, but the only place it refers to psychologists who can prescribe medications is Louisiana, USA.

The APA definition is the commonly accepted one that should be central in this WIKI. That in a handful of states worldwide medical psychology refers to a clinical registration which allows psychologists to prescribe medications is obviously not the general definition.

The prescription of medication is not a specialty. It is a legal privilege and a tool. Medical Psychology is much more than that.
