Kenya Medical Training College
Nairobi, Kenya


University description (as per official university website)

About KMTC
Situated about three kilometers on the northern side of Nairobi city, Kenya, KMTC headquarters and the main campus, Nairobi, stand on a 20-acre piece of land, opposite the largest referral hospital in the east African region, Kenyatta National Hospital, along Old Mbagathi Road.

With over 14,000 students attending more than 50 medical courses, KMTC makes the biggest single contribution to the health sector in Kenya and has continuously produced more than 2500 graduates every year for both the Kenyan public and private health sectors, accounting for more than 80 percent of the hospitals' workforce.

The institution boasts of a highly qualified and experienced teaching and administrative staff. With a strength of over 1,500 members of staff, KMTC remains a leading employer under the health ministry.

The national distribution of the College is its biggest uniqueness. With 28 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 Medical Services, started in 1927 with four students at Kenya Institute of Administration (KIA), Kabete.

Today, eight decades later, 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 speaks volumes about the direction KMTC is taking towards becoming a learning hub for thousands of Kenyans pursuing various courses. The growth 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. These courses have continuously grown to meet the changing needs of the country's health care system.

Our History, Our Strength
Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) started in 1927 with four students at Kenya Institute of Administration (KIA), Kabete.

In 1990, it became a Semi-Autonomous Government Agency through an Act of Parliament, Cap.261, Legal Notice No. 14, Laws of Kenya.

In 1994, the name Kenya Medical Training College was adopted as a unifying title for the College. Since then KMTC operates independent of the Ministry Of Health under a Board of Management.

Today, eight decades since it was established, KMTC has grown tremendously, curving a niche for itself as one of the largest medical training institution in East and Central Africa- drawing students from Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda, Namibia, Sudan and Nigeria.

A hub for international students, KMTC is a leading training institution for the Sudan as well as for Central, Eastern, Southern Africa and other Northern African countries. With over 13,000 students attending more than 50 medical courses, KMTC makes the biggest contribution to the health sector in Kenya.

Propelled by its ambitious vision to become a center of excellence in the training and development of competent health professionals, KMTC has continued to churn out more than 3000 graduates, accounting for more than 80 percent of health workers in the Kenyan health care facilities.
