Measures in Place for College’s Continued Growth and Development
KMTC students and staff are set to benefit from plans put in place by the Board and Management to streamline and optimize operations in the College, CEO Prof. Michael Kiptoo has said.
The CEO said this when he met KMTC Principals and Heads of Department during the quarterly Academic Council meeting held in Nairobi from 25th to 27th September, 2019.
Prof. Kiptoo commended the Principals for their tireless efforts in the admission of new students. This, he said, had borne fruits as all KMTC programmes for the September 2019 intake were now full.
Noting that it would take everyone’s concerted efforts to maintain the College’s upward trajectory, the CEO reported that “The KMTC Board of Directors is committed in ensuring the continuous improvement in our training standards and as a result, every KMTC Campus will have a bus and a double cabin pick up by July 2020, to ease movement of staff and students to clinical areas.”
He further reported that an harmonized teaching schedule had been finalized that would safeguard quality and relevance of training in addition to ensuring that resources available in the Campuses are put to optimum use.
In tandem with the dynamic world and the changing trends, Prof. Kiptoo said that the Enterprise Resource Planning software would be rolled out to 21 additional Campuses, an addition to the 11 already using the system, to entrench transparency, efficiency and effectiveness in the College’s day to day operations. Additionally, internet services would be streamlined across the Campuses.
The CEO revealed that KMTC staff would now have an easier time owning homes through the Mortgage Scheme and car loans would be considered in future. He added that the College would continue supporting staff to undertake relevant training to enhance their skills.
He urged Principals to support transfer of staff as this was being done in line with service needs and in fulfillment of the National Cohesion requirements.
As proof of commitment to student’s welfare, Prof. Kiptoo said Campuses have adequate facilities to provide a conducive environment for teaching and learning. He added that students will also continue receiving necessary support for their extra-curricular activities.
The CEO urged all to play their role in the continued prosperity of the College.
Several presentations were made during the meeting including review of the KMTC Statutes, admissions, quality assurance, among others.
The Academic Council meets quarterly to deliberate on academic matters and continued sustenance of quality teaching and learning to enable the College achieve its Mission of producing competent health professionals.
