Hans Selye, M.D., a recognized expert in the field, has defined stress as a "non-specific response of the body to a demand."

Hi,

Does "M.D." in the above refer to "medicine" or "medical" doctor? Or doctor of medicine? Thanks.

It comes from history, when Latin was the language of the educated.
1755, abbreviation of L. Medicinæ Doctor "doctor of medicine."

Thanks, Alphecca.

To make sure, does "doctor of medicine" amount to "medicine doctor" and "medical doctor?"
