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 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.
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.
