Is it possible to rewrite "Doctors and teachers are alike in that they both deal with people." into?
"Doctors and teachers are alike in dealing with people." ?

Just remove the words “are alike in that they”.

Possibly. What is the finer point you're trying to make? Dealing with people is something that practically everyone does.

No. The second sentence means that doctors and teachers deal with people the same way, which is different that you stating the fact that both docotes and teachers deal with people(1st sentence).
