Doctor of Medicine (MD, from the Latin Medicinæ Doctor meaning "Teacher of Medicine") is a professional degree to become a medical doctor. The degree is granted by medical schools.

It is a professional doctorate / first professional degree (qualifying degree) in some countries, including the United States and Canada, although training is entered after obtaining from 90 to 120 credit hours of university level work  and in most cases after having obtained a Bachelors Degree. In other countries, such as the United Kingdom, Germany and India, the MD is an advanced academic research degree similar to a PhD or a higher doctorate.[1] In Britain, Ireland, and many Commonwealth nations, the qualifying medical degree is instead the Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS, BMBS, BM BCh, BM, MB BCh BAO, or MBChB) and is considered equivalent to the M.D. degree in the U.S. system.
