This chapter considers professional doctorate development for the health and social care disciplines in the UK excluding medicine, psychology and dentistry. The professional doctorate’s origins are explored followed by discussion of three critical questions emergent within the professional doctorate literature:
• Is the professional doctorate credible relative to the PhD within health and social care disciplines?
• What are the Student Experiences of Health and Social Care professional doctorates?
• Does the professional doctorate impact upon health and social care practice?
