Elective Africa has recently established one of the best elective programs at Mbagathi District Hospital, in Nairobi to offer healthcare students electives rotation in this populous city in Africa. We have working relationships with other hospitals under the City Council of Nairobi
Mbagathi District Hospital is located within the capital city of Kenya and is the main District Hospital serving a population of more than 3 million people. This is an ideal hospital location for medical, nursing, dental, midwifery and other healthcare students seeking clinical elective rotations while within an urban setting
It was built in the 1950’s to offer health care services for the infectious diseases, which required isolation such as Tuberculosis, Measles, Meningitis and Leprosy. The hospital was under Kenyatta National Hospital (‘’KNH’’) until 1995 when it was curved from KNH and transformed into an autonomous District Hospital for Nairobi. It has a 200 bed capacity with the following services: Surgical Unit, Maternity Ward, New Born Unit, Growth Monitoring and Promotionand outpatient Services which include: Dental Clinic, Eye Clinic Antenatal, Family Planning, Antiretroviral Therapy, HIV Counseling and Testing, Tuberculosis diagnosis, labs and treatmentand Radiology Services (e.g X-ray, Ultra Scan, MRI, etc).
