Doctor is a title for a scientist or medical professional. It is also one of the titles for a Circuit Physician. Villages, towns, and many cities across the Frontier had no permanent doctor, but they would periodically employ a traveling one. Circuit Physicians included independently operating individuals, members of small Frontier Medical Associations, and doctors dispatched from the Capital. They might provide treatment in a given village for as little as a few hours, or for as long as six months.
