Message from the Chair
Welcome to the Department of Surgery at the Medical College, Aga Khan University based at the Aga Khan University Hospital, Nairobi (AKUH, N), Kenya. We are dedicated to equipping the surgeons of tomorrow with quality education, clinical skills, and attitudes in order to ensure excellent surgical services and compassionate patient care.
The department of surgery plans to work towards excelling in education, service delivery, and research. The vision of the department is to provide premier tertiary care in the field of surgery in sub-Saharan Africa. We also aim to provide well-trained surgeons that will provide leadership in education, service, and research in the region and particularly in the East Africa region.
Our focus of service delivery to the citizens of the region would be based on subspecialty programmes in general surgery (breast, upper gastro-intestinal/hepatobiliary, and colorectal programmes); neurosurgery, urology, ear/nose/throat/head, and neck surgery, cardiac, orthopaedic, ophthalmology, paediatric and plastic surgery.
