What is KMTC

The Kenya Medical Training College, KMTC is well known as the best training college for medical courses in the region. KMTC is a state corporation established in 1990 that trains students in various health disciplines for the health sector and works under the Ministry of Health.

Did you know KMTC started with only 4 students!

Yes, that is right.

The Kenya Medical Training College started in 1927 with only four students at the Kabete Institute of Admission(KIA) in Kabete. It was only in 1990 that the college was made a government agency through an Act if Parliament, Cap 261 Legal Notice No. 14 Laws of Kenya and in 1994 the name Kenya Medical Training College was adopted.

Today this college that started with only 4 students has over 41,000 students taking 76 medical courses across the country. It also employs over 2200 staff members to attend to their campuses.

KMTC established itself as the biggest contributor to the country’s health sector producing over 12,000 graduates every year who go on to work in both public and private health sectors. That’s about 85 per cent of the country’s health workforce.

Expanding KMTC beyond Kenya

The massiveness of KMTC is not only visible in Kenya but also outside the country’s borders. There is a KMTC branch/campus in every corner of the country and in every county, located strategically next to hospitals.

This idea ensures that students learning in those colleges can attend clinical attachments and gain practical experiences from the hospitals near them. For this reason KMTC has attracted students from Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, Nigeria and beyond.

It is the largest medical training institution in East and Central Africa.
