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.
