K'S ROYAL COLLEGE OF HEALTH SCIENCES

Chrinical Medicine

 

This has been developed to suit the needs of the health sector, the labour market demands, legal and professional needs that exist in our country. It is one of the initiatives by the Government to modernize qualifications within the health sector and optimize transferability within and across sectors and disciplines.

Development of this programme is aimed at rewarding individual achievement in learning and competence gained in a variety of different ways and contexts. The introduction of this programme is geared towards increasing productivity in training institutions, addressing skills gaps and shortages in workplaces, providing a climbing ladder for higher skills opportunities and achieving a more responsive education and training system, aligned with health sector employment needs.

The philosophy of developing NTA in Clinical Medicine programme is to provide a fair and well developed ‘stairway’ in technical education that opens the possibility of moving along the NTA qualification framework and receive appropriate recognition, which is currently limited. It is thus intended to produce creative, innovative and flexible graduates who will contribute to the national development schemes in the health sector by utilising their competencies in the community.
