The roots of the word “doctor” don’t have anything to do with medical practice. So when did this word start describing those in the medical field?
“It is impossible by elections to choose normal people,” argues Yoram Gat, an Israeli software engineer with a PhD in statistics.

A PhD refers to a research degree. The main requirement behind a PhD is creating new knowledge. To complete a PhD, students must hold an undergraduate degree and in many cases, a master’s degree. To apply, students usually submit a research proposal to the department where they want to study. This proposal outlines what a student intends to research on, how it relates to current research and describes what methods students will use to carry out their research.

The end of a PhD is a written thesis, evidence of work completed, not what and how we, as students struggled with and overcame.
No one who takes 20+ years to complete a PhD is taken seriously by REAL academic institutions.

A: When I complete my PhD, I will return to China and devote my whole life to serving society.
“The” sounds unnatural here. When you say “the” it sounds like you are referring to a specific society that may have been mentioned before. If you mean society in general, then a/an/the isn’t needed.

  • apply for a project that already has specific, pre-defined aims
  • compete for a place on a partially or fully funded programme (often with competitive application processes).

Lets consider what is involved in research and how we share this with the world, or more particularly how can you successfully demonstrate that you have contributed some `output from your work?”
Firstly, as scientists what do we consider as outputs? The list is vast and may include:

Introduction: Most European countries accept a dual standard for determining death: total brain failure and irreversible circulatory arrest. Nevertheless, their policies differ with regard to the specific tests and requirements to determine irreversible loss of brain and/or cardiac function. Some have questioned the conceptual validity of both standards in the context of organ donation (President’s Council 2008). To better understand the extent to which these conceptual debates may have an impact in practice, some surveys have been performed within general public and health care workers involved in the determination of death and organ donation (Youngner et al. 1989; Siminoff et al. 2004; Dubois et al. 2004; Rodríguez-Arias and INCONFUSE study group 2008).
Objectives: This research aims at three objectives: 1. to analyze and compare health professionals’ knowledge and beliefs regarding the dual standard; 2. to assess and compare their attitudes towards organ procurement, and 3. to elicit their underlying concepts of death and personhood. In this communication, the methodology of this research will be discussed. The procedure of the adaptation of the questionnaire and some methodological choices that have been done will be explained. The French pilot study results will be presented. Finally, the participation of new countries will be proposed.
