The Chairperson of the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Board, Prof. George Magoha has challenged medical schools in the country to produce quality graduates and undertake targeted research that can be harnessed to achieve universal health coverage.
Prof. Magoha was speaking Friday February 8, 2019 at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology where he led a team from the regulatory body for inspection of JKUAT’s School of Medicine.
The official decreed infiltration of fake practitioners in the country and urged medical training institutions to tighten quality controls in order to produce component doctors and other medical cadres.
While receiving the team at JKUAT, the Vice Chancellor Prof. Victoria Ngumi noted that the University would work closely with the Board as it endeavours to produce properly trained medical doctors for Kenya’s healthcare delivery.
Prof. Magoha was accompanied to JKUAT by the Board’s CEO, Daniel M. Yumbya; Dr. Nelly Bosire, Dr. Elly Opot and Dr. Tom Ogola
