Doctor refers to any individual who has graduated from a college or university with a doctorate. In most instances, these individuals specialize in the medical field, but some literary scholars may also possess doctorates and hold the title of doctor. Many scientists, also refer to themselves as doctors, though in the case of certain "mad scientists", this is likely used as an honorific as many of these individuals have been stripped of their license to practice medicine.
