Isn't "the doctor" = "der Arzt"? Why would "Die Ärztin" be the doctor?

"Ärztin" is a female doctor.

Not to be confused with "die Ärzte", of course, which is "the doctors" (plural).

And so 'the female doctors' would be 'die Ärztinnen'.

Shouldn't "The female doctor defines the time period" be considered correct?
