KMTC Courses – Kenya Medical Training College Courses Background

Situated about three kilometers on the northern side of Nairobi city, Kenya, Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) headquarters and the main campus, Nairobi, stand on a 20-acre piece of land, opposite Kenyatta National Hospital, along Old Mbagathi Road.

With over 22,000 students attending more than 50 medical courses, KMTC makes the biggest single contribution to the health sector in Kenya and is currently producing more than 6000 graduates every year for both the Kenyan public and private health sectors, accounting for more than 80 percent of the hospitals’ workforce.

KMTC boasts of a highly qualified and experienced teaching and administrative staff. It has a strength of over 1,600 members of staff.

The national distribution of the KMTC College is its biggest uniqueness. With 36 constituent colleges spread throughout the country as far as Lodwar and Garissa, Loitoktok and Kisumu, the impact of the College in improving healthcare is felt in all parts of the country.

Today, you are sure to find KMTC in every corner of this country, strategically located next to a provincial or district hospitals where students go for clinical attachment.

KMTC, the only public middle level health training institution under the Ministry of Health, started in 1927 with four students at Kenya Institute of Administration (KIA), Kabete.

Today KMTC has grown tremendously, curving a niche for itself as one of the largest medical training institution in East and Central Africa and even beyond- drawing students from Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda, Sudan and Nigeria.

This unprecedented growth from humble beginnings to the complex college it is today is attributable to the unwavering support of the government, hard work by the dedicated staff, students’ diligence and sound management.

The wide range of our courses, from certificate to diploma to higher diploma, reflects the institution’s responsiveness to the needs of our nation.

The rising number of admissions show the trust bestowed on us by the public and the aspirations of our valued clients, the students.
