The Kenya Medical Training College will expand its Siaya campus to enable more students access training in the medical field, the board of directors of the institution has said.
The Chairman of the Board, Prof. Philip Kaloki said that the Siaya College will be expanded to accommodate 2,000 students and additional courses.
Speaking when he led the Board on a tour of the college, Prof. Kaloki said that plans were underway to construct two four-storey hostels for female and male students.
The hostels projects, he said, will cost Sh. 86 million and are scheduled to kick off in July this year.
He said the board was committed towards improvement of both the infrastructure and human resources, adding that they will soon add more lecturers to campuses across the country.
“In order to help the government realise one of its key Big Four agendas, Universal Health Care, we want to train more health care providers and equip them with skills to ensure they are well placed to implement the UHC,” said Prof. Kaloki who was flanked by the Board Vice Chair, Dr. David Muthoga.
