Arzt, Arztin, Arzte

Question, possibly error note: Splash page for segment on Plurals, after first checkpoint in German course. Says translation of Arzt is "male physician" and the feminine Arztin translates as "female physicist"

Physician and physicist are two different things. At least, in English, they are. Is the suggestion, here, that they're the same thing in German, or is this a typo? If typo, then which is it?

It is a typo. Arzt/Ă„rztin means physician or medical doctor. A physicist is Physiker (masculine) or Physikerin (feminine).


Thanks, fixed it!
