Funny how most people think a Dr. is an MD...and it's certainly not the case as I have friends as many of us do know doubt who are MD's, and those with a Ph.D and Sc.D.

Doctor of science is new to me.

Kirk said...

Medical doctors are the ones most people encounter most often, thus the word "doctor" has become synonymous with M.D.

Mary Kirkland said...

I actually didn't know the different types.

Doctorates are the top of the University degrees.
Certainly not confined to the medical profession.
Most top professors at tertiary institutions have
a doctorate.
Not too many if any in that bloody Trump administration of ratbags!!!!!!
Definitely none.......brains are not required in that place anymore
