The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
The Science of Physics deals with the understanding of nature and the mathematical modelling that allows us to further our knowledge of it. A career in Physics, be it at the Bachelor's, Master's or Doctoral level, will grant you entry to many analytical professions where a high comprehension of modelling and analysis is needed.
