That's DOCTOR Bon Jovi to You

Jon Bon Jovi has never been so qualified to prescribe "Bad Medicine" as he is now.

On Monday, the University of Pennsylvania gave the 57-year-old rocker an honorary Doctor of Music degree during its 263rd Commencement.

"New Jersey native, singer-songwriter, producer, and actor Jon Bon Jovi, the front man and founder of the Grammy Award-winning band Bon Jovi, has made self-reliance, optimism, and community key hallmarks of his music and his philanthropy," the university said in a statement on their website.

Bon Jovi received an honorary degree in music.

Following the event, which was staged at Philadelphia's Franklin Field, Bon Jovi tweeted, "It's better to be a doctor than be in need of a doctor."

The honor marked the second time Bon Jovi was handed a degree without having to go through any annoying schooling. In 2001, Monmouth University awarded the New Jersey native an honorary Doctorate of Humanities.

It's better to be a doctor than be in need of a doctor. Thanks @uofpenn and congratulations to all the graduates.
