Would also depend on the Doctor's actual position or job within the organization as well.
Yes, rank and position are two seperate things. Data is the second officer, third in command of the Enterprise, even though Crusher outranks him and he and Geordi share the same rank.

Troi having to assume command of the bridge in "Disaster" simply because of her rank was ridiculous.
