That Darn Katz! seems to indicate he's a professor now instead of a doctor. The question is; should we move this to Professor Ogden Wernstrom or just Ogden Wernstrom? I doubt we're going to move Amy Wong to "Dr. Amy Wong", but this is a different issue. - Quolnok 10:34, 7 August 2010 (CEST)

I don't know how US doctorate system works. But in France, all my former university teachers were doctors. So i don't really see where is the problem.Yach 12:21, 7 August 2010 (CEST)
Mine were all either doctors or about to become doctors, a few were also associate professors and one or two were professors. This is how the system works in the US, which I believe is probably how it works here in Australia too. Evidently we could have changed him to Associate Professor after he received tenure in A Big Piece of Garbage. "Professor" supersedes "Doctor", but I'm also considering whether there should be a title there, we have a few character articles around that could have titles but don't (Zapp, Kif, Enos, Amy) and others that do (Wernstrom, Farnsworth, Poopenmeyer, Changstein). Wikipedia has a policy regarding this... Perhaps this should have been on the conference table... - Quolnok 16:44, 7 August 2010 (CEST)

Has there been definitive proof that Wernstrom has a doctoral degree? If there has, it should be referenced on the page. However, to my knowledge, there hasn't been a clear claim to Wernstrom's education (even if it has been insinuated, it has never been identified). One must have some form of doctoral degree to be considered a "doctor." I believe until it is proven that he has a doctorate in some field, "Professor" would be the appropriate term. Thoughts?-- the preceding unsigned comment was written by 50.33.162.197.

He had been called "Doctor" Wernstrom in most of his appearances during the original run. I don't think the specific degree has been noted, but he certainly has a doctorate. - Quolnok (talk) 12:01, 2 February 2012 (CET)
