Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) has achieved international recognition for outstanding medical training for the fourth time in a row, rising to second in the latest Webometrics Universities and Tertiary Colleges rankings.
The college was also placed 35th among the greatest schools of higher learning in the country, beating out giants like African Nazarene University, Multimedia University, and the Technical University of Mombasa, among others.
The University of Nairobi and Kenya School of Government both took first place in the university and tertiary college categories.
Reacting to the good news, KMTC CEO Dr. Kelly Oluoch welcomed the ranking, noting that the College has made major strides toward enhancing teaching and learning.
“In the last few years, the College has continued to attract huge numbers of applicants, thanks to the marketability of our end products, the KMTC graduates,” he said.
The Webometrics Ranking of World Universities, also known as the Ranking Web of Universities, is a university ranking system based on a composite indicator that considers both the volume of web content (number of web pages and files) and the visibility and impact of these web publications based on the number of external site citations received.
Dr. Oluoch praised the Corporate Communications and Research sections for increasing the visibility of the college brand through the creation and publication of success stories and research projects.
“Consequently, we have improved our online presence, making our services noticeable across the globe,” he said.
Recently, the KMTC Higher National Diploma qualifications were equated to university Bachelor’s Degrees, further enhancing the recognizability of KMTC graduates, both locally and in the global market.
