Kenya Medical Training College Kabarnet Campus dates back to 1990 when it was established as an MTC at the then Baringo District Development Institute now GTI Baringo.

The campus started by training certificate in Enrolled Community Nursing and Public Health Technicians up to 1999 when PHT bore Diploma in Public Health (in-service) in the year 2000. The Government of Kenya during the same period through the MOH had proposed to build MTC Kabarnet on a plot of 8 acres set aside next to Kabarnet District Hospital for the same project.

The college is located in Kabarnet town, next to Kabarnet District Hospital. The campus is a few kilometers from the scenic Kerio Valley and Lakes Baringo and Bogoria.
