To achieve this, the Faculty has partnerships with a number of health centers and hospitals including those in underserved areas in the country. Further the faculty runs an Innovative curriculum that affords students opportunity to focus on improved health care delivery at both primary and tertiary levels.
We are working on developing a distinguished research base, focused on areas of research in which we can make a unique contribution. Such areas include population health, Maternal and Child Health, and Nutrition and Health Management. Every effort is being made to integrate research into teaching and learning at the faculty.
In the short while we shall be launching the Master of Medicine (Internal medicine), Master of Medicine (Paediatrics), and Master of Public Health programs.
