List of Hmong Doctorates in the United States
« on: October 11, 2007, 12:13:28 AM »
I've recently been under attack for providing "false" information and it hurts somewhat. Anyway, here's a real list of Hmong with doctorate degrees in the United States (I apologize for the crappiness of the scan, but you can zoom in):

You should keep writing funny stories.  Who cares what they think. 

Anyway, what field are they in?

D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathy)
D.B.A. (Doctor of Business Administration)

I don't know if Th.D is considered a doctorate.  You could say I have a doctor degree in palm reading.  That's what a doctor degree in theology is like.  I was asking about the Ph.Ds.  What fields are they in?

When you count the number of Hmong doctorates,

I think it would only make sense to include:

M.D, and Ph.D. 

It is tempting to include D.D.S.

Don't know what fields. The list doesn't get that specific.

The guy who compiled the list, Victor Yang, didn't claim the list to be complete. He said that if anyone wishes to add to it can contact him.

Hurry so they can all get their happy meals!

It hard to read from the list but I see a few names that I know and then there are some that I want to check up on because thier Ph.D or advanced degree is just from a correspondence school which I never look at thier degree as accrediated or what they can do with it in the real world even though they still prefer to be called Doctor.

BP...did you consider...(pun intended) that the list is old and therefore irrelevant?

Wow! Thanks for sharing! Its a great list! Gotta use the data that you have and its as thorough as it can be! I recognize many names and agree with madcow that this list is real. Hopefully in the near future I can add my name to that list too! Is there contact information for Victor, so that others with doctorate degrees who are missing can be added?  ;D Again...thanks 4 sharing!

There was a fourth sheet that included his contact information. I'll put that up tonight on my blog.
