    The doctor is a "practitioner" (noun) who is trained in the medical practice. He or she therefore calls his or her work, their practice - in the same way a lawyer would name his or her profession, their practice is law.

    Further, the doctor's place of work is called a practice, to reflect the nature of the premises as purpose-built for the doctor's occupation.
