* The CSIVerse has two ex-doctors. ''Series/{{CSI}}'' had Dr. Ray Langston and ''Series/{{CSINY}}'' has Dr. Sheldon Hawkes. Both have ended up giving emergency care a time or two. Hawkes even helps with a bicycle first aid team in the park. Of course, the medical examiners (Robbins, Hammerbeck) are also doctors, but don't practice medicine.

* [[AllTheLittleGermanies Field Marshal Blücher]] was given an honorary doctorate (in law) by Oxford University. But then his work ''did'' [[BlackComedy contribute to medical science]]. And to law, although more about about which law applied where rather than what that law actually says.

* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'': Ratchet is the medic of the Autobots and very knowledgeable about biology and medicine...but only Cybertronian-based, which is a far cry from human biology and medicine. Part of it has to do with the fact he never thought he'd ''need'' to know it, as the Autobots were hiding on Earth from the majority of the population [[NobleBigot and he himself isn't really a big fan]]. This almost comes back to bite him when Raf, a human who has become friends with the Autobots and a part of the team, ends up getting dangerously sick thanks to exposure to Dark Energon and he has no idea how to help him, and the day is only saved by Jack's mother, who is a nurse.

* Anaflex had a recurring joke where people ask "if inflammation does not go away, does pain return?" to doctors in many varied circumstances. One of them was a graduated receiving his diploma, and interrupting the ceremony to answer the cell phone call. "Sorry, I'm a lawyer"

It's a fairly recent (20th century) name change; prior to that the degree requiring the exact same coursework was the Bachelor of Law or LLB degree.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

** It seems a little odd for Black Canary to think this, since in the DC Universe it may be true for super''villains'', but most superheroes who use the "Dr" title ''are'' physicians. Dr Manhattan is NotThatKindOfDoctor (doctorate in physics), but he's explicitly not part of the mainstream DC Universe and Black Canary shouldn't know about him. Dr Fate ''used to be'' NotThatKindOfDoctor (doctorate in archaeology/Egyptology), but ended up becoming a physician anyway. Dr Light (the heroic female version, not Arthur Light) ''used to be'' NotThatKindOfDoctor (doctorate in astronomy), but has also since become a physician.

** A skit where Creator/LennyHenry plays the Doctor uses this to set up an ObligatoryJoke.
-->'''The Doctor:''' I [DramaticPause] am the Doctor.
-->'''Homeless bum:''' Great, because I've got this really nasty rash on my back...
-->'''The Doctor:''' Not that kind of doctor -- THE Doctor.
-->'''Homeless bum:''' Doctor what?
-->'''The Doctor:''' That's near enough...

** Ironically in "The Husbands of River Song", River mistakes the Doctor for an actual doctor, being unaware that he's regenerated (and she was expecting a medical doctor at the time).
