    ACADEMICS

    The college prides itself as the only middle level technical college that is offers hospital based training for all its courses. All our students attend practical clinical exposure in various health facilities in the country. This ensures that our students have actual hospital experience even before they proceed for their hospital attachment in their respective programmes of training. This has ensured that our graduates are efficiently prepared to work rather than be trained when they seek employment. While we acknowledge that learning is a continuous process, we appreciate the fact that the college has prepared graduates that can perform their duties without much follow up.

    • Thika Level V Hospital,
    • Kiambu Level IV Hospital,
    • Gatundu Level IV Hospital,
