Why is "Hemos convertido en doctores" wrong? Sometimes the Nosotros is necessary, sometimes not.

Convertir is being used reflexively here, since we have turned 'ourselves' into doctors. The hint is the reflexive pronoun "nos." The sentence you suggest, even if you added "Nosotros," is "We have converted doctors." "The Nos" adds the "ourselves."
