LUMS is interested in AKU's International Internship Programme for their students and of special interest are internships at the hospital that students enrolled in the LUMS Health Care Management programme could apply to.

LUMS and AKU are both leading institutions in Pakistan, a partnership between both can be mutually beneficial.  Further discussions are planned for this year that will build on this initial visit.
