Welcome to the School of Medicine.
The School of Medicine started in January 2012 with the admission of pioneer students for the six-year Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBChB) programme. The School is fully accredited by the Medical Practitioners and Dentists Board. The Pre-Clinical Departments comprising of Human Anatomy, Medical Physiology, Medical Biochemistry, Medical Microbiology and Human Pathology, with state-of-the art laboratories, are located at the Main Campus in Siriba. The Clinical Departments comprising of Internal Medicine, Paediatrics & Child Health, Surgery & Anaesthesiology, Psychiatry, Pharmacology, and Family & Emergency Medicine are based at Kisumu Campus Varsity Plaza on the 5th Floor. In addition to the MBChB programme, the School offers courses leading to the award of degrees of Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry, Master of Science in Medical Physiology, Master of Medicine (M.Med) in Family and Emergency Medicine, and M.Med in General Surgery. Other M.Med programmes are under development and will be launched soon.
The mission of the School is to produce health care professionals equipped with adequate knowledge, skills, professional attitudes and competencies in health care delivery, research and innovation. We offer high quality training, conduct medical research addressing priority health problems, and engage in community outreach services. Our highly trained and experienced clinical faculty provide specialised diagnostic and clinical services at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital, (JOOTRH), and Kisumu County Hospital, both serving as teaching hospitals for the School. The School also uses hospitals and health centres of the various Counties in the region for community health and clinical placements. We emphasise and uphold professional ethics and high moral standards in medical practice, teaching and research.
The vision of the School of Medicine is to be a centre of excellence in the training of health workforce capable of addressing the national and global health needs. We aspire to become the Medical School of choice in the country for training high calibre of medical practitioners, clinical specialists and biomedical scientists.
This website provides basic information about the School, including admission requirements to the various academic programmes, departments and faculty profiles, clinical services, research and outreach activities.
