It would be taxable. The head would be in accordance with the terms of engagement.

Stipend received by a doctor will be taxable as Salary or as Professionals.and TDS needs to be deducted.

However if the stipend is given for pursuing the further  studies , as paid for residend doctors doing post graduation , MD, MS etc one can treat it as scholorship grants for meeting cost of educations.Section 10(16).

case can be relied on Sudhirkumar Vs ITO, where in stipend to CA student was held exempt.
