Postgraduate Medical Education at Aga Khan University

Postgraduate Medical Education at Aga Khan UniversityThe first postgraduate clinical training programmes, were launched following the inauguration of Aga Khan University Hospital in 1985. Since critical thinking and analysis are the keystone of scientific thought and the prerequisite for meaningful scholarship and research, it is essential for any educational programme to encompass aspects such as biomedical ethics, teaching skills, research methodology as well as communication skills.

Postgraduate medical education at AKU strives to instil these qualities into its graduates through carefully structured programmes, to produce skilled technologists and facilitate a process of broad professional and personal development. Trainees represent the University in their interactions with patients and colleagues, and are expected to carry their duties and activities in a manner befitting their responsibilities.
