Well, there are several kinds of doctors. If you're referring to medical physicians, then a medical degree such as the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.), Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), or Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS/MBChB) would be the necessary degree. A medical license would also be required to practice as a medical physician. There are also research doctorates (Ph.D.s) who have earned the Doctor of Philosophy degree. Other doctorate degrees such as a J.D. degree (Doctor of Jurisprudence) are also sometimes referred to as Dr., but most commonly doctor is used to refer to medical physicians or research doctorates.
