Internship, Residency and Fellowship Programmes
The Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME) programme at Aga Khan University aims to provide excellence and innovation in specialized postgraduate medical education to promote evidence-based health care and research abiding by the principles of ethics and professionalism.
The 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 instill these qualities into its graduates through carefully structured programmes, to facilitate a process of broad professional and personal development
