Mode of Learning
The long term basic programs are offered full time from 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
Students in the department of Nursing alternate between theory blocks and practical experiences in the clinical areas. At the end of each theory block, pre-service students attend skills lab sessions, where they are taught various practical skills. Then they are subjected to an objectively scored clinical examination (OSCE). The students then go to the clinical areas where they rotate through the Maternity Unit, Outpatient department, surgical, medical and pediatric wards.
Clinical Medicine students rotate in all the wards within the Sub-County Hospital including the outpatient department and theatre, where they gain various practical skills. The students are then guided to conduct a community diagnosis, after which they conduct a one day outreach in the area where they did the community diagnosis. They then proceed to the Rural Health centers for six weeks to gain experience in rural health care and health center management.
Health records department certificate course has two clinical placements; the first placement is done in the national and referral hospital where the second placement in the Sub-County hospitals. The diploma program has one clinical area placement in the national and referral/ Sub-County hospitals followed by a second placement for data collection for their research projects.
