What is the difference between psychiatry and psychology?

There seems to be a lot of confusion on the two, can you provide clarification on the difference between them?

A psychiatrist is a medical doctor (MD) and prescribes medications. A psychologist is a doctor as well but is either a PhD or PsyD and cannot prescribe medications but often does clinical work such as therapy or psychological assessment and/ or research.
