It’s a tough question because there are many specialties and settings where one might practice. Their knowledge of general medicine may range from excellent to rusty. The amount of assistance they get from nurses would vary - indeed some nurses know a great deal of medicine. But all of the doctors and many of the medical students are skilled at learning and could pick up some things. I’m sure the areas like ICU where more knowledge is required would not be available to all. In remote settings, with no or few doctors, nurses or other professionals basically do their best. As they would here.
