Many doctors are constrained by their individual circumstances and cannot undertake full-time postgraduate education. To try to ensure access to this education for such doctors, AKU's PGME programmes offer the flexible training option. This allows the selected individuals to train part-time in a way that lets them have time to look after their other responsibilities. A switch to full-time training can be made at an agreed-upon time. Not all programmes offer this option and the time limits set by the CPSP have to be kept in mind.
The flexible programme is offered in the following Residency programmes:
- Anaesthesiology (No positions available for 2013)
- Internal Medicine
- Paediatrics & Child Health
- Pathology (No positions available for 2013)
These programmes already have had doctors taking advantage of this opportunity.
