Mountcrest University College breaks grounds for Medical School

Mountcrest University College has broken the ground for the construction of a medical school lecture hall complex and a teaching hospital at Larteh.

The lecture hall complex expected to be ready in September would also house the School of Nursing and Midwifery and would be named after the late son of the founder of the college, Kwame Ansa-Asare.

Mr Kwaku Ansa-Asare, Founder and Rector of the School, said the School had forged a partnership with the College of Medicine at Penn State University and the partnership involves course work development, medical student exchange and expansion of the Global Health Scholars Programme to Ghana.

Professor Akua Kuenyehia, President of the School, said currently the School runs four faculties namely Law, School of Medical and Health Sciences, Publishing and Communication Studies, and Arts and Social Sciences.

She said three additional faculties namely Agricultural and Natural Resources, Business School and the Medical School would start in September this year and indicated that, the Faculty of Agricultural and Natural Resources would focus on training students in entrepreneurship in agri-business.

Professor Kuenyehia said with the heavy investments in building infrastructure, private universities need government support to be able to run programmes needed for national development.

Professor William Oduro, a representative of the Vice Chancellor of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) lauded the school for its trailblazer initiatives and added that, KNUST would support the University to run all programmes proposed successfully.

Nana Asiedu Okoo Ababio, Chief of Larteh and Benkumhene of the Akuapem Traditional Area, thanked the Founder of the College for selecting the community and hoped that the school’s presence would impact on the livelihood of the people of Larteh both economically and health wise.
