Students at the Tricent School of medical and health sciences will have an opportunity to secure employment opportunities in select hospitals in the country.

After pursuing different medical courses, the students can also get scholarships abroad to further their education.

School director Dennis Oketch was elated to inform the students of the development during the 8th graduation held in Juja on November 11.

Oketch was recently appointed the Inaugural General National Patron for the Kenya Association of Healthcare Support Providers – (KAHSP).

This is a requirement by the Ministry of Health through their gazette notice to aide licenses for all members working in Kenya including Nurse assistants.

“We have created partnerships with medical institutions, universities, nongovernmental organizations and hospitals to aid them to explore their fields of study,” Oketch said.

This, he said, will be made possible through a practical hospital-based training approach supervised by competent staff in liaison with partner Hospitals.

On curriculum reforms, Oketch said the institution has responded to the dynamics of the world.

“This has resulted in record passes of credit and distinctions from our students in the KNEC examinations every year,” he said.

He added that Tricent college conducts curriculum reviews with respect to need assessment done by various governmental bodies mandated to do so.

The graduation was graced by Nairobi County Assembly speaker Ken Ngondi as the chief guest.

Other guests in attendance were the Director of accreditation of the Technical and Vocational Education and Training Authority (TVETA) Fred Nyambane.

The institution has partnered with almost eight hospitals to enrol students for internships and other opportunities.

They are Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital, Kisumu County referral Hospital, Homa Bay County Teaching referral Hospital and Acacia Medical Imaging Centre.

Others are Kombewa Sub-County Hospital, Kalimoni Hospital, Ladnan Hospital and Beirut Hospital.
