    Default Doctor by training

    I'm learning English in Japan.
    By the way,

    I'd like to know the meanng of "He is a doctor by training."
    Does this sentence mean that he was a doctor, and is not working as a doctor now?
    Or, is this only mean that he recieved medical education, and has a license of doctor?

    Default Re: Doctor by training

    It usually means that he has qualified as a doctor, but is doing something different.

    Thank you very much!

    I'm sorry, my English was gramatically wrong.
    [Or, is this only mean that he recieved medical education, and has a license of doctor?]

    Or, does this only mean that he recieved medical education, and has a license of a doctor?

    And, a doctor's license, or a license as a doctor is better.
    Thank you very much!

    I'd say a doctor's license.
