Psychopath is born bad, while a Sociopath is a product of their environment.
Those two terms aren't used in the medical community though. The name they use is ASPD.

Just want to add that not all psycopaths/sociopaths are evil scheming killers, most are nice people

A psychopath doesn’t have a conscience.They do not feel any remorse whatsoever for doing something that would be considered wrong. Whereas a sociopath typically has a conscience, but it’s weak. They may know it's wrong but won't really care and carry on with their antisocial; behaviour.
Sociopaths are normally less emotionally stable and highly impulsive, they usually act more on compulsion.
Psychopaths will plan their crimes down to the smallest detail, taking calculated risks to avoid detection.

Psychopaths and sociopaths are essentially the same thing, both are just used to describe someone with an ASPD diagnosis
