Recently, many medical students have been enrolling in joint M.D./J.D. programs, in which they receive both medical and law degrees at the conclusion of their studies. But since medical students primarily earn their law degree in order to protect themselves from malpractice lawsuits as doctors, we must still conclude that they are primarily doctors, and not lawyers.

Which of the following is an assumption that supports drawing the conclusion above from the reason given?

A Some students who complete such joint programs choose to become lawyers in fields in which they do not use their medical training, while those who choose to become doctors do use legal training.
B Certain recipients of these joint degrees are not any less diligent than others in the legal courses that they take, with notable exceptions.
C If such joint degrees required that students focus more on their legal studies than their medical studies, students could be considered lawyers after graduation.
D A person cannot be considered a lawyer if he or she received a law degree for purposes other than practicing the law.
E Medical students, in doing extensive lab work, get much more practical experience about their future field than law students get about practicing law.

Stem - Students who study doctor and lawyer degree together are primarily doctors as they use law knowledge only for their own litigation purpose.

A - Out of scope
B - No information available.
C - No mentions of study focus
D - Correct answer - Exactly what stem says. Students should be considered doctors as they don't practice law professionally.
E - Again out of scope. No mention of lab work and practical experience.
