Other psychologists work in health care, where they help medical and surgical patients deal with illnesses or injuries. They can also work in developmental psychology where they study the physiological, cognitive, and social development that takes place throughout life. Other psychologists work in advertising, consumer relations and products, telecommunications, military, entertainment, and sports. Psychologists also work with lawyers who are involved in civil or criminal cases. They perform psychological assessments and interpret and present their findings. They can also work in corrections, probation, or parole issues.

Other psychologists work in experimental or research psychology, where they develop methodologies and techniques for applied psychologists. They often work with those in the medical field such as neurologists and psychiatrists to understand how certain neurological diseases work, and with chemists and those in pharmacy to develop pharmaceutical cures.
