The graduating class has a national outlook and we are hopeful that the graduates will go back to their respective counties to serve the needy in the society and fill in the gaps for human personnel at the county levels. The School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) offers excellence & discovery, leadership & integrity, diversity & inclusion and respect & collegiality. This has made the KeMU medical school very attractive and now records the highest number of government sponsored students among all private universities in Kenya.The future of KeMU SMHS is in approaching medical programmes from an integrated methodology ranging from specialized practice to tackling general issues. KeMU is currently having conversations with Meru and neighboring counties and partners like Maua Methodist Hospital in a view of establishing a Cancer Care Centre in the region.
We propose that the government should consider significantly increasing the amount of sponsorship awarded to medical students to make the training more attractive and affordable. The National Research Fund should also dedicate more resources to fund research in the Medical Schools of both private and public universities towards realization of Vision 2030.
Founded in 2003, the School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) is the fastest growing school of the KeMU. SMHS started as a department of nursing and eventually growing to full-fledged School of Medicine and Health Sciences with four departmentsnamely:-Department of Nursing, Department of Clinical Medicine Surgery and Community Health, Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences, and Department of Health Systems Management and Medical Education.
The future is made at Kenya Methodist University: The future is here.
