Traduction en anglais : "Doctor" without being an M.D. : What is the ranking given by non-MD's to medical doctorate dissertations ?

Using an anonymous questionnaire containing 16 questions we carried out a study of all the practising doctors in Mid-Franconia, Germany, who did not write a dissertation (n=243).
We asked about their intentions to write a dissertation, reasons for prematurely breaking off the dissertation and their views on the value of medical dissertations.
Evaluation was carried out using descriptive statistics in the sense of an exploratory data analysis.
The questionnaire was answered in a usable form by 140 physicians (return quote 58%). The average age of the participants was 44 years (33-89 years).
The vast majority (89%) had attempted one or several dissertations, 32% still intended to write a dissertation. 59% regarded writing a dissertation alongside daily practice as very difficult of impossible.
