Higher Diploma in Clinical Medicine – Nephrology

Be among the early birds and join this demand driven course.

We have all seen an upsurge in Kidney Failure Patients. Many hospitals and private organizations have established renal units to respond to the high demand of patients. Unfortunately, Kenya has very few Nephrology Nurses and Doctors. You’re likely to get a job before you finish, if you do not have one now; or start you specialized clinic.

This course in North Coast is not only about dialysis, it covers the whole concept of kidney disease: from causes, diagnosis, management and even prevention at individual and community levels. Therefore, prepare to be a well-grounded Nephrology Clinical Officer.

Your valid question at this point may be – why should I do it in North Coast?

Our sincere answers to you:

  • We are experts in adult learning – it wouldn’t take long before we prove it to you.
  • We have created a blended learning environment – we have brief moments of face to face, where we support you to fully become proficient in on-line learning and we value practical application of Knowledge, through learning and doing.
  • We believe in empowering learners – you will finish the course as a proficient scholar capable of learning throughout your life; and a credible decision maker, rather than a subservient and traditional Clinical Officer, whose first instinct is – if refer for senior review, without proper understanding the underlying problem.
  • Even most importantly, you do not have to leave your job to come and study with us, particularly if your employer is not keen to do that. We will support you to work as you study.
