You're not a doctor if you don't treat sick people or have the ability to treat sick people.

Nurses also know how to treat sick people and treat sick people. That doesn't seem to be primarily what being a doctor is about.

If treating people is a necessary but not sufficient condition, that is enough for my point.

Stupid Questions July 2015

This thread is for asking any questions that might seem obvious, tangential, silly or what-have-you. Don't be shy, everyone has holes in their knowledge, though the fewer and the smaller we can make them, the better.

Please be respectful of other people's admitting ignorance and don't mock them for it, as they're doing a noble thing.

To any future monthly posters of SQ threads, please remember to add the "stupid_questions" tag.
