See an explanation below:


Many people believe Dr. Jack Kervorkian earned the name Dr. Death because of the assistance he provide people in committing suicide.

However, he earned this nickname much earlier for a much different reason. When he was a pathology resident, he lobbied for carrying out medical experiments on death-row inmates at the hour set for their execution, and then giving them lethal injections. This is what first earned him the nickname “Dr. Death.”
