Hi Superman

Yes, in the same sense that a dentist is a doctor. No, in the sense that they do not do a medical (MBChB) degree. I think that chiropractors do a four year degree (not 100% sure of that). Doctors (medical, that is) do a five year degree followed by the internship/comm serve period.

Hope this clarifies it
