** The trope name is spoken word for word in the comic version of ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' when Harley Quinn is trying to save a [[ItMakesSenseInContext talking chimp]] and asks him for help. Harley, who actually ''did'' [[GeniusDitz go to medical school]], then tells ''Mister'' Fate to take the chimp's human friend out of the room while she starts to work on him. The fact that Harley got her degree in ''psychiatry'' through blackmail is lost on her, of course.

* The original Comicbook/DoctorFate was a doctor of archaeology. Most of the subsequent Doctor Fates weren't doctors at all, they'd just [[LegacyCharacter inherited the name]]. That said, one of them was a psychoanalyst, while another was a medical student.

* One episode of ''Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun'' had Vicki asking Dr. Albright if she would deliver her (alien) baby. Mary tries to explain that she isn't that kind of doctor, she just has a doctorate in anthropology, but Vicki doesn't understand several of the words she uses and takes it as Mary just blowing her off because of the gap in their social classes, education, basic hygiene, etc...
** "I'm an anthropologist." "Is that like, the butt?" Vicki confused both "anthro" or "anthropology" with "anterior", but also "anterior" with "posterior".

* BillCosby had a doctorate in education from University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He is listed as William Cosby, Ed. D. in the end credits to several of his shows, including ''Series/TheCosbyShow''. He also had Honorary Doctorates from over a dozen universities, most of them in Humane Letters, but he never uses a title. The "had" [[RoleEndingMisdemeanor is because almost all of them have now been rescinded]] following a large number of accusations of sexual assault.
