In brief: No
That is completely incorrect.
Med students see patients but may not write any orders or do any procedures without direct supervision of a doctor. Residents are physicians - they have an md or do degree & a limited license. They do treat patients but again are under the supervision & ultimate authority of a doctor that has completed training. Your question is offensive & arrogant.
