GE Healthcare and the Ministry of Health recently trained over 260 healthcare technologists from all Level 4, 5 and 6 hospitals from across the country’s 47 counties. The 12 weeks training is part of the MES training curriculum based on 800+ weeks of education program shared between onsite training sessions and classroom training sessions at the GE Healthcare Skills and Training Institute (HSTI) in Nairobi. Topics covered during the training included Clinical Applications Training on X-ray, Mammography, Dental X-ray, Ultrasound, C-Arm and Environmental, Health and Safety Training.

“Continuous training and skills development are essential ingredients in ensuring the efficiency of healthcare staff, considering the rapidly developing technologies and constant updates in procedures. The refresher training is helping to sustain the quality of healthcare services in the public hospitals across the country and ensuring the healthcare professionals’ skills remain up to date as they support the country’s Universal Health Coverage (UHC) agenda,” said Andrew Waititu, Managing Director of GE Healthcare East Africa.

The GE HSTI based at the Watermark Business Park in Karen provides a forum for information and discussion on developments and changes in the radiology and radiographic profession globally. The HSTI was established to address factors such as skill shortages, cost containment, need for quality improvement, technological innovation, new medical interventions, new health sector programmes and health sector reform.

The training facilitated in collaboration with GE Healthcare will ensure this mandate is attained through proper running and maintenance of the specialized, modern, state-of-the-art medical equipment installed at the county and sub-county health facilities as part of the MES project.”
