@Quine Very true. I think doctors are to biology what engineers are to physics; application, application, no novel insight (unless we look at the occasional doctor or engineer who decides to take a step up). It's surprising to see in the vast majority of medical literature that MDs will use the word 'resistance' but never mention 'evolution' or 'natural selection' when discussing topics such as the cline of virulence among bacteria.
