​Medical College, East Africa

Established in 2004, the Aga Khan University Medical College in East Africa seeks to provide high quality education for health professional leaders who will then go on to become reputable specialists generating a positive and lasting impact in the lives of their patients and in the communities they serve.

Our goal is to produce health professional leaders through our unique training programmes, building strong research programmes, supporting best practice in the delivery of health services, and contributing to the broader community through strategic partnerships regionally and globally.

We aspire to build for the youth of East Africa, a medical college of international quality, providing them with the opportunity to get the best health professional education that is relevant and has impact across East Africa, and indeed, in the world.

Welcome to the Aga Khan University Medical College, East Africa, where we consistently convert possibilities into reality!

" AKU has equipped us with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that have empowered us to have an impact to the communities that we serve. We have been equipped with the requisite attributes that enable us to be leaders in the medical field; upholding the highest quality standards in our profession not only in the East Africa region but also globally."
