This is the only department whose students are the KMTC lecturers, it trains them on how to apply the competencies gained to innovatively teach the curricula and mentor students.
The Ministry of health in 1979 realized the need for trained medical educators at training institutions and established the faculty of medical education at KMTC to train health professionals to become teachers in their fields of specialization.
The objective of the department is to develop medical educators who can effectively plan teaching programs, teach, manage, conduct research and develop health learning materials in health training institutions.
