It is good to enroll in an approved medical, dental, surgery, and pharmacy school in Kenya so that whatever medical course you intend to pursue will be recognized by KMPDC.

Otherwise, it will be illegal to offer medical services in Kenya with professional certificates that are not recognized by the medical council.
