According to the New York Times, most of the .md top level domains are in the hands of the medical community. Originally, the .md domain was given to the country of Moldova, a former Soviet state and current the poorest nation in Europe. Although some companies worked with Moldovan companies to use the .md domain, in 2003 MaxMd now has "long-term rights from Moldova to market .md in more than 90 countries." If you haven't seen it yet, you may start noticing hospitals, clinics, medical centers, and doctors using it, e.g., phil.md.
