Are you also considering those with a D.O.?

Does it matter to you if they just have the degree or are you also wondering if they are residency trained and actually practice medicine?

According to her bio she has a PhD not an MD.

However in the UK the degrees are different than in the US. Someone from over there can correct me on this, but I believe an MD there is more of a research degree that is done on top of their ‘medical degree’ which is a Bachelors of Medicine or Surgery

Lucy Gossage has both. She is a medical doctor, with a PhD- she's an oncologist.

In the UK you do your medical degree as an undergraduate and then after working for a few years, most people do a masters degree +/- PhD while specialising.

My understanding is that after you finish your MB (undergraduate work) you can then proceed to either do a 3-4 year PhD or an 2 year MD degree on top of being a physician. So some doctors are physicians who also have an MD degree and others are a physician who also have a PhD degree. I from her bio as well as the GMC registry it looks like she went the PhD route and has specialized in medical oncology. She is a medical doctor, but it doesn’t appear that she also has the MD degree

It’s semantics, which I why I posted earlier about the if they OP os looking for triathletes that are MD’s. Is it the degree itself or are they trying to find out which ones are medical doctors as in physicians. Some US based physicians are DO’s and some UK based physicians are MB/PhD. Both are medical doctors and the equivalent to an MD even though they are not technically an “MD” which is a degree

And Rainer Mueller Horner let everyone know he is and that is sadly very German. In race results he was always listed as Dr Rainer Mueller Hoerner.

My mom asked me one time when my wife will be a real doctor, and I told her that she already is. My mom then wondered why it did not say so on her airline ticket

Disclaimer: I am a doctor in the UK.

You do your undergraduate medical degree. This is awarded as an MBCHb or MBBS. You are then a fully qualified doctor.
Some people take an extra year to do a BSc. This is known as an intercalated degree.

You then embark on 2 years of foundation training. After which you apply for your chosen specialty. Ie. medicine or surgery or anaesthetics etc.

Specialty training is around 7 years depending on the speciality. During that time you can take time out of training and do a higher degree, such as a masters, MD or PhD. You do not need to do this to become a specialist or a consultant. It just makes you more competitive applying for consultant posts.

That seems depressingly complicated. I guess the thing is too when you get your MBBS you are a doctor but not really qualified. Like can you work as a doctor and get paid? It is the same thing in North America in that once you finish your MD you still have to do specialty training before you can practice. But you go directly from med school into residency. The shortest route is 2 years to general/family practice in Canada.

Thank you for the reply's.

Impressive list and I had no clue as to the numbers.

I am putting together an Advisory Board to incubate medical devices in Health and Wellness. Consumer -> Medical

Would love to include like minded athletes, and my guidance is first to search for MDs.
However I can make arguments for PhDs too who are active researchers and publish.
Bonus would be MD but Entrepreneurial too.

So far I have:


Amanda Stevens MD
Rainer Muller
Tamsin Lewis
Cececila Davis-Hayes MD
Lucy Gossage MD
Joanna Zeiger MD
Matt Brick
Matt Hanson PhD
Tanja Erath
Eric Bean MD
NICOLE KELLEHER MD
Asa Lundstrom
Mitch Anderson
Rainer Mueller Hoerner MD
Miriam Casillas MD
Clemente Alonso McKernan

Yeah it can be complex!

Actually as soon as you've qualified, you can work, and are paid as a doctor. However obviously you do the rubbish jobs, like chasing scans, bloods etc etc. As you gain more experience you take on more responsibility.

If that is your mission, then you might look up Erin Baker. One of the best ever female pros in our sport, I believe she bought controlling interest in a medical device company in NZ. Then I recall she learned all about the devices, and became that person that taught the actual surgeons how to place them, and how they all work..
