What is the DO after doctors' names?
In the US it means Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine and is very similar to a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree, although it is a slightly different training program with additional emphasis on wellness and preventive care of the human body and sometimes with use of some manipulation (like Chiropractors do) of spinal, bone and joint position. Their licenses allow them to do basically all the same functions of an MD, such as prescription of medications, surgery, and specialty training.

D.O. after a doctor's name stands for Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. This type of physician has the same rights and privileges as a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.). Osteopathic m…edical schools are another type of medical school in the United States. Some osteopathic medical schools require a slightly lower average college GPA for acceptance than allopathic schools but the curricula contain the same classes plus some training in physical manipulation, known as OMT (osteopathic manipulative treatment) which tends to be more specifically targeted (and often applied with less force) than chiropractic treatments. Osteopathic physicians can take their own board exams or the more conventional boards, train in osteopathic or conventional residencies and are fully licensed as physicians who can admit patients to hospitals, do surgery, and write prescriptions.

This is the whole point- nobody knows what his real name is.Although he seems like an Earth person he is in fact a humanoidalien known as a Time Lord from the far-distant plan…et Gallifrey,which is very much bigger and infinitely more technically advancedthan Earth. His native language is Gallifresian (although he speaksmany alien languages), which has a completely different alphabetincomprehensible to Earth folk and may not be verbally pronouncedat all, but communicated telepathically or via some other means. Hegoes by the name of 'The Doctor' to simplify matters to other lifeforms and to justify his brilliant genius in a whole wide range ofareas. But nobody will ever know his real name- the series began in1963 and ran till 1989, then was resurrected in 2005. Doctor Who isa genre that the BBC cannot afford to dispense with finally, so itcan never run an episode where his real name is revealed.
