I am pleased to welcome you to Aga Khan University Medical College (AKU-MC) website. The Medical College, which commenced its operation in 1983, is an academic unit of the Faculty of Health Sciences, alongside the School of Nursing. In the Medical College, in addition to the MBBS degree in Medicine, we offer an MSc in Epidemiology and Biostatistics and an MSc in Health Policy and Management, both centred in the Department of Community Health Sciences. We also offer a PhD in Health Sciences, a multi-disciplinary programme with a focus on the basic sciences. We have an extensive Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME) programme comprised currently of 31 residency and 28 Fellowship programmes in clinical disciplines. In addition, PGME programmes are offered in East Africa.

Our faculty members are devoted to the highest standard of education, scholarship, research, and patient care. Research in all our academic units continue to take on increasing importance and we are competitive internationally in a number of research areas.

We are proud of the great strides and advances that the faculty has made over the past two decades. We anticipate continued growth and greater accomplishments in all our endeavours.
