Message from the Program Director

The Department of Internal Medicine houses the largest residency at the institution and has a long-standing history of training outstanding physicians. We strives to achieve excellence in our mission of patient care, education and research.

Our goals at the Aga Khan University, Nairobi Internal Medicine Residency Program is to provide our residents with superior training that will enable them to offer top-notch, professional, evidence based care to their patients and families.  The program here not only foster academic growth, but also teaches residents on principle of communication, professionalism, patient safety and empathy to help them become well-rounded physicians.

Our residents have the opportunity to work with our highly specialized faculty, who have trained both locally and internationally, in the inpatient and outpatient settings.  Our faculty is always available to provide residents with mentorship and guide them as needed through their residency at this institution.

Our curriculum is designed to provide our residents with a wealth of general internal and sub specialty medicine, solidifying their foundation to being successful upon graduation.  In addition, our program prepares our residents for diverse careers in internal medicine with an emphasis on general internal medicine in the outpatient and/or hospital setting. We focus on both didactic, peer to peer, as well as bedside interactive teaching to improve sharing of evidence-based knowledge.

Our department faculty are highly involved in research activities and we encourage all our residents to be involved in research projects, with faculty mentorship, to help foster academic growth, explore interest in research opportunities, and to complete resident’s dissertation projects. 

We warmly welcome you to our department and look forward to working with you.
