Kenya Medical Training College – Bondo Campus is located in Bondo town within Bondo Sub-County in Siaya County along Bondo – Siaya Road. Bondo Campus was started in March 2012 as an initiative of the KMTC Board of Directors and supported by the community led by the then Bondo Member of Parliament Hon. Gideon Ochanda and funded by National Government –Constituency Development Fund. The Campus started at the former Masita Technical Training Center offering Certificate in Health Records and Information Technology. Due to demand for clinical courses, the Sub-County Health Committee allocated another site near Bondo Sub-County Hospital where the main campus was established.
The following programmes were started at the main campus: Diploma in Kenya Registered Community Health Nursing in September 2012, Diploma in Clinical Medicine in September 2015 and an upgrading programme in Health Records in September 2015.
