Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) Webuye Campus was established in 2005 courtesy of the KMTC Board of Directors, the then area Member of Parliament for Webuye Hon. Musikari Kombo and the local community. The Campus is located in Webuye East.
It was started as an initiative of the community and supported by the CDF Webuye. The local CDF is credited for having funded the construction of all lecture halls and dining hall. Apart from Webuye Constituency, other development partners include the neighbouring Kimilili Constituency. The computer Lab was partially funded by Kimilili CDF and completed by Webuye East CDF. Bungoma County and Webuye Municipality have also given financial support through the LATF.
Webuye Campus opened its doors to students in October 2005 with a pioneer group of 82 diploma in Clinical Medicine and Surgery students. In March 2007, the Department of Nursing was introduced and 37 Kenya Registered Community Health Nursing (KRCHN) students were admitted.
