Spanish term or phrase:Doctor en Medicina
2000: Grado de Doctor en Medicina obtenido por la tesis doctoral.......
¿Cuál es la diferencia entre MD (Doctor of Medicine) y PhD of Medicine?
Explanation: would be a valid rendering of your phrase. The difference is something of a long story. The "Licenciado en Medicina y Cirugía" is an undergraduate course (5 years), and the Doctorate in Medicine (Doctorado en Medicina) is a post-graduate course. If this is Spain, there is no Master's. The correspondence is 5 years + the years required for the doctorate. Validating credits between this system and a different one is done by counting study-hours.
Explanation: MD significa que es medico y Phd significa que el medico estudio un postgrado. En Estados Unidos Phd es postgrado en cualquier carrera profesional.
Los medicos usan junto, MD, Phd
