KMTC COLLEGE | Kenya Medical Training College

KMTC COLLEGE; 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 22,000 students attending more than 52 medical courses, KMTC makes the biggest contribution to the health sector in Kenya.

With over 22000 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 5000 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. It enjoys the services of over 1,900 members of staff.

The national distribution of the College is its biggest uniqueness. With 38 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 hospital 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 then 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.
