Medical care is provided at a College Dispensary, staffed by a full-time doctor, health laboratory technician and a nurse.  Students requiring medical attention will report to the Dispensary at the time posted on the College’s Dispensary notice board.  Students who will need emergency attention outside the posted time should report to the Medical Officer. If treatment outside the College is necessary, students will be referred to a hospital which offers consultancy services e.g. Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre (KCMC), Kibosho Designated District Hospital (KDDH) and Mawenzi Regional Hospital. Students referred to hospitals for outpatient treatment must obtain a medical certificate from the hospital and present this to the Medical Officer on return.

College fees do not cover medical treatment provided outside of the College. Students are advised to take health insurance before or after arriving at the College. Any medical expenses incurred outside the College Dispensary shall be the responsibility of the students themselves and will not be reimbursed by the College. Students are encouraged to join health insurance services like National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) in order to cover for their medical services outside the College dispensary whenever and wherever they fall sick.

As in most of Sub-Saharan Africa, malaria and typhoid are very common diseases and it is recommended that students take the necessary precautions.  A Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate is required for all visitors to Tanzania.
