The Directorate of Training, Research and Innovation facilitates training, capacity building and research in the Hospital. It offers strategic leadership in the formulation and implementation of research and planning policies, systems and procedures. The directorate spearheads and coordinates the organisation’s research agendas including budgeting, effective dissemination of research findings, determining the most appropriate commercialisation route, and to develop innovative services.

Another core function of this department is to develop a network of contacts within professional healthcare organisations, and other research institutions within Kenya, the Region and globally. The goal is to identify new opportunities to work in partnerships that further the professional and commercial ambitions of the hospital. Moreover, the department ensures that all staff engaged in clinical research are appropriately trained, qualified, and training resources are readily accessible to trainees as per accreditation guidelines.
