Yes, and I am clear on their training. However, my opinion is that doctors come nowhere close to being scientists. Perhaps, yes, they are closer than a plumber, but that was hyperbole to lend to my point.
When I was in college, I had to take programming courses to demonstrate a basic competence in computer programming. I was tested repeatedly. That experience in no way qualifies me to say that I'm an expert at programming, or even that I am considerably more knowledgeable than a business person writing formulas in an Excel spreadsheet. In the same vein, IMO, doctors don't really qualify as scientists, or even being particularly knowledgeable about the subject. However, the belief among laypeople is that they are knowledgeable. This leads to false weighting of medical opinion versus scientific opinion. They are not one and the same, but many people do not distinguish between the two. I think they should do so.
