The Nairobi Campus team, comprising of experienced faculty members, showcased a wide array of programs and opportunities available at the College. Students flocked to the booth, eager to learn more about the diverse healthcare disciplines offered by KMTC, including nursing, pharmacy, medical laboratory sciences, and more.

Engaging sessions with KMTC representatives allowed students to have their queries answered, gain detailed insights into the admission process, and discover the rewarding career prospects within the healthcare industry. These interactive discussions provided a deeper understanding of the various medical courses available in the College and the potential impact graduates can make in improving the lives of individuals and communities.
