I agreed with virtually all your answers but I have to comment on this.
RTD has said that the character portrayed by Naoko Mori - Dr. Sato in
"Doctor Who: Aliens of London (#1.4)" and Toshiko Sato in TW are the
same character. It is quite possible for people have degrees in more
than one area of science. Like Owen, it would appear that Tosh (and
there is no 'i' in the nickname) does have a medical degree and while
Owen still uses his degree (though not as a 'practicing physician due
to the desire not to interact with patients), Tosh no longer
practices medicine but concentrates on computers and other high tech items.
