English term or phrase:Dr.
In a "clinical center stratus" of a clinical investigation, there is a column for "principal investigator", in which there are 10-odd persons with the title of Dr. before their names. Does it mean they are physicians etc. or they all have a doctor degree?:-)
A qualified doctor can put "Dr." before his name (in India, but probably elsewhere too).
A person who has a phD in any subject can also do the same!
But since your context is a clinical centre, it is more likely that all the ten specialists are actually trained doctors (I mean MDs). Of course, some of them might be actually phD doctors, like in a related subject like child psychology, for example.
