Doctors are also known as physicians and medical practitioners. Doctors care for the sick and injured, diagnose illnesses, and prescribe treatments. Doctors may specialize in a certain type of medicine, for example, cancer or brain surgery.

Because of their necessity in the course of life, doctors are often found in art. Fine art examples include the painting The Doctor by Luke Fildes, and a number of works by Norman Rockwell, including Doctor and the Doll and Before the Shot.

Doctors are also prominent in popular culture. Many movies, books, and television series include a doctor from time to time, and some stories even center around the medical profession.
