Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Department of Continuing Professional Education of Aga Khan University. We are trying our best to provide outstanding educational activities which would teach evidence based practices. This would significantly impact to improve health. Health care needs are ever changing and it is important for us to identify needs of the people around us to seek our help and guidance in order to improve their knowledge and skills. In 2009, we would be offering several courses through seminars, symposium, invited lectures, workshops and sign symptoms and cure programmes, which would cover almost all branches of medicine and nursing.

We are very proud that almost all the units of the University would be contributing towards continuing education which would be significantly impacting the existing knowledge of the people who register for these courses.

As this is a new department, we are going to grow in our strength with the passage of time. We would be guided by our mission and vision which clearly outlines that we would strive to be leaders in this field in our region. Continuing Education is a life long commitment and all professionals in the current era would like to benefit from this source.

The Department of CPE would be allocating credit hours for individual courses and participants will get credit certificates according to the time they have spent for continuing education. This would help them in re-credentialing and re-validation of their licenses.

If you have any suggestions for this website, please contact me through email and your suggestions would be very welcome.
