Message from the Chairperson.
Welcome to the department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology website!
In accordance to The Constitution of Kenya 2010, Article 43 (1) (a) “Every person has the right to the highest attainable standard of health, which includes the right to health care services, including reproductive health care.” While Vision 2030 goal for health is “Equitable and Affordable Health Care of the Highest Standard.
Kenya aims to create a globally competitive knowledge-based economy and healthy adaptive human resource base to meet the requirements of Vision 2030. It will be impossible to achieve national and international goals – including the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – without greater and more effective investment in training high quality human resource to provide health services, especially in reproductive health.
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology has supported and sustained that focus. Our mission is “To provide training of high quality reproductive health care practitioners competent in provision of reproductive health services, research and training”.
The many faculty members, who are clinicians and researchers, are dedicated to doing everything possible to provide women and their families with the most advanced care available anywhere.
Our resolve to provide undergraduate and postgraduate students with the finest education and training experience is second only to our commitment to provide women with exceptional patient care.
The faculty and staff are committed to creating and sustaining an optimal educational environment for acquiring knowledge, developing technical skills, and fostering sensitivity toward women and their families. We pride ourselves on selecting staff members who are energetic, enthusiastic, diligent and dedicated to providing unparalleled patient care.
Our unique strength lies in our ability to seamlessly integrate the use of modern teaching techniques, harnessing ICT to enhance learning.
We have developed and nurtured effective partnerships and collaborations to support research, teaching and service delivery.
Our goal is to train physicians to be excellent clinicians with the ability to continue learning and advancing so they always remain outstanding practitioners. However, in this very challenging healthcare environment, we also focus on helping them prepare for a successful medical practice and leadership in policy & planning RH services. Our broad-scoped opportunities meet the academic and clinical needs of primary care obstetricians and gynecologists, as well as those who choose to become subspecialists.
