Message from the Global ​Director​​

Professor Charl​es Docherty​​​


Welcome to the Centre for Innovation in Medical Education (CIME). CIME is currently one centre in two international locations: Pakistan and Kenya, and will soon be joined by Uganda and Tanzania. Since 20​17, we have been investing our time, ​en​-​ergy, and resources in training physicians, nurses, students, and other health care providers through simulation-based education so that they can provide quality care to patients.​ ​

Our passion is to deliver high-quality educational programmes to health care trainees and professionals, and to provide a venue to engage in cutting-edge research and innovation. We serve undergraduate and postgraduate medical and nursing students; hospital staff and allied health sectors in general. Our doors are always opened to the community through a range of educational programmes. 

Our Centre in Pakistan is the first simulation-based educational institute in South Asia to be fully accredited by the prestigious Society for Simulation in Healthcare, SSH. The Aga Khan University is very proud of the vital role our Centres play in the education of our health care providers. It is a jewel in the crown. 

We at CIME stand for unprecedented growth and extraordinary commitment to making a better tomorrow. The journey of CIME is never ending. But with the support of my team, I am confident that CIME will continue to reach milestones of excellence in health care for years to come.

Professor Charles Docherty
