*85 persons not included in this table because of insufficient or illegible information

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

**The year a registry entrant is determined to have become a doctor is calculated by first taking the date of completion of the MB/ChB degree and adding four years,

 

 

 

 

 

or the MB/ChB degree or MB/Bs and adding 4 years to include an internship of 2-3 years. If this degree is illegible, year of entry into the profession is approximated by

 

 

 

 

 

taking date of birth (DOB) and adding 27 years.  Where neither are available,  the year of the mid-level medical degree is taken.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

***Somali are included in this total in order to gauge those who would likely appear non-sub-saharan African, and thus not included

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

in a mental count of Kenyan Africans by those trying to gauge their own group's predominance
