Message from the President, Aga Khan University
The vision for the Center for Innovation in Medical Education (CIME) comes directly from the vision of the Chancellor, His Highness the Aga Khan. During the 2006 convocation, he said:
“In the age of the internet, knowledge is universally shaped, universally accessible, and universally applied. ….the Aga Khan University must make the years ahead a time to broaden our networks, broaden our teaching and broaden our geographic reach.”
CIME has been made a reality by the kind generosity of the donors Bashir Dawood and family Bashir Nathoo and family and Shiraz Boghani and Family.
As a state of the art facility comparable to the best in the world, the CIME aims to transform education in Nursing, Medicine, Dentistry and Allied Health across the continuum of undergraduate, postgraduate students, practitioners, specialists and subspecialists. It aims to bridge boundaries across health professions enhancing team work and inter-professional education. It has the potential for supporting and encouraging innovation in biomedical engineering and simulation studies, spearheading simulation-based learning and research in teaching with technology in the region. This Centre is envisioned to be a resource for the health professionals in the country and for the region.
