Suffixes to names: Masters degrees and PhD degrees are non-medical degrees. They are "graduate" degrees (in anything of interest to the graduate student), meaning they are done after getting a bachelor's degree in college. A board is an organization (has rules for membership) that in medicine is usually for each specialty. A fellow would be a doctor who has been recognized as achieving the criteria set by a board.
