Can you show me a list of medical qualifications and the terms on a degree?

Like Ph.d. and other qualifications that a doctor can get? Doesn’t have to be limited to medical doctor. Any initials after a professional degree.

Although some of those like N.D. actually mean “Not a doctor”.

The Scarecrow in Wizard of Oz was awarded a Th.D. – Doctor of Thinkology. But that doesn’t appear on @Caravanfan ‘s list

@Caravanfan Thanks. Can you show me more on what I would read on the front door of a doctors office? I can’t remember the initials.

Just look at that list. American and British versions are different.
