PHD is a passive item .

A certificate with "PHD" written on it.

Effects [ ]

Isaac wears a surgeon's mask.

Changes the effects of all negative Pills to their positive counterparts. Neutral pills, such as Bad Gas, are not affected. Restores two Heart Containers on pick up. Has a 1/150 chance to identify the pill that is currently being held every frame.

If Telepills has not yet been identified as a pill in the current run (i.e. if the player has not yet used a Telepills), PHD guarantees that Telepills cannot show up in the current run.

Also increases coin payout from the Blood Donation Machine and IV Bag from 1-3 to 2-4.

PHD has the potential to be a very powerful starting item, as it turns most pills into permanent stat increases.

  • PHD is an abbreviation for 'Philosophiae Doctor' (Latin for 'Doctor of Philosophy').

Originally posted by The Merovingian : If you get two it should give you a doctor transformation that makes all pills have double effects, twice as much positive and negative, and you no longer receive only bad or good pills, you just get both dropping at random.

    There are now far too many useless and bad pills allowed with the PHD that stat upgrades have become a rarity. One Makes You Large is also bad since your hitbox becomes larger.
