MD does NOT stand for medical doctor, although that's the adjectives interpretation.
MD is a Latin abbreviation, Medicinae Doctor. Its English translation is "Doctor of Medicine". Similarly, a PhD stands for Philosophiae Doctor, or "Doctor of Philosophy", not "Philosophical Doctor". We don't use Latin much anymore, so we assign the junk mail a reasonable English equivalent "medical doctor". Technically though, the latin decree is correct,
By contrast, the Doctor of Osteopathy degree (a much newer degree), follows the English decree since it was created contained by the 1800s, when Latin had lost some (but not all) of its preeminence. Thus, it is abbreviated "DO", not "OD"
Medicinae Doctor, Doctor of Medicine
