Uncle @RAEinforma, it is correct to say «medical» referring to women who engaged in the profession, or just to say «doctor» is enough?
«-Alcaraz (@kikealcarazg) January 30, 2019 #RAEconsultas grammatically, the feminine of «doctor» is «medical», in substantive applications both use adjectives («consultation») («my sister’s medical)»; Therefore, is that the way to be used in reference to the woman who has the medicine.
The clarification was born after the question of a user on Twitter and rapidly viralizó since much of medicine titled women have written in their college paper «Physician», what would be wrong according to the information given by the dictionary.
