Academic Courses

The wide range of KMTC courses, from certificate to diploma to higher diploma, reflects the institution's responsiveness to the needs of our nation.

The rising number of admissions show the trust bestowed on us by the public and the aspirations of our valued clients, the students.

The courses have continuously grown from a handful to more than 50 currently, to meet the changing needs of the country's health care system.

The introduction of new courses is in line with the College's strategy to keep abreast with market changes and the needs of the global community.
