In reply to an earlier draft FAQ I received an off-list proposal to avoid using "physician" as the term is not used in the UK or Australia where is used "doctor". While I find "physician" helpful to distinguish myself from other "doctors" such as the "foot doctor" (podiatrist) and the "[pharmacy] doctor" (as Pharm D's sometimes pose), not to mention Drs Smith and Jones (the local PhDs), I am not averse to having us stick with "doctor" in documentation and discussion if that pleases the group.
