One of Kapsowar Mission Hospital’s strategic priorities is to become a training center of excellence enabling medical and surgical teams to serve in rural, under-resourced settings. Kapsowar Mission hospital has several initiatives in nursing, perioperative theatre technicians, resident training in surgery and family medicine.
MEDICAL TRAINING COLLEGE: NURSING TRAINING
Kapsowar Mission Hospital developed a Medical Training School (MTC) in 2009 which focused on the training of nurses. Since 2009 there have been 21 graduating classes after successfully writing the Nursing Council of Kenya exams for a Diploma in Nursing. Our classes have an extremely consistent high degree of performance and completion of their diploma program exams. Intakes for the nursing program occur every March and September. Students board at the school in a large hostel building. Instructors teach the full spectrum of nursing and academic skills needed to pass the Kenya Nursing Council Examinations.
MEDICAL TRAINING COLLEGE: PERIOPERATIVE THEATRE TECHNOLOGY
Since 2020 the MTC offers a diploma (2.5 years) and a certificate (1.5 years) which prepares graduates for employment to work in operating rooms in Kenya based on their training and skills obtained in this program. Students study Anatomy, physiology, sterilization techniques, assisting in the operating room and working with equipment and supplies in the theatre setting.
For further information on the requirements for admission and curriculum and fees for admission to any MTC programs please go to the website or Facebook pages of the Kapsowar Mission Hospital MTC.
FAMILY MEDICINE RESIDENCY TRAINING
