College ramping up partnership to scale up teaching and learning
The Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) is exploring a partnership with GE Healthcare to train students using the latest healthcare machines and improve quality training.
GE Healthcare is a subsidiary of American multinational conglomerate General Electric, a manufacturer and distributor of diagnostic imaging agents and radiopharmaceuticals for imaging modalities used in medical imaging procedures.
Speaking when he met representatives from GE Thursday (April 13, 2022), Acting CEO Dr. Kelly Oluoch said the partnership will significantly expand College’s access to the latest medical machines, allowing it to offer world-class training for students.
The GE representatives included the Managing Director-Medical Sector, Mr. Tarek Abdelrahman, West Africa Cardiovascular Sales Leader, Arize A. Onejeme and Clinical Application Specialist-Ultrasound, Judith Nyaboke.
Mr. Terek revealed that the company enjoys a wide range of the latest healthcare equipment in Kenya at their training centre in Karen Nairobi, noting that KMTC students will have access to the facility for training purposes.
In 2012, GE signed a landmark Memorandum of Understanding agreement with the government to develop projects in key sectors, including power and healthcare.
