The country will never have enough doctors, especially in certain specialties. That clearly shows you that this Medicine will continue to be one of the most marketable courses in Kenya.
Most developing countries have a problem in their health sectors especially when it comes to critical operations. They don’t have qualified doctors to do the job.
Sometimes you will find that there are only two or three neurosurgeons or cardiologists in the whole of Kenya. That shows a deficiency in the need for such doctors; so this is one of the marketable courses in Kenya.
Why are most students not studying those complex specializations? Well, first, there are no enough or sometimes no qualified professors to teach the students.
Secondly, the courses are quite expensive and are not offered in every other university. Third, the qualifications for such marketable courses in Kenya are quite high.
Yes, you could have the grades but lack the money to be enrolled in Medicine. And if luckily some students are enrolled in it, they will not study those complex specializations.
