Message from the Chair 

Department of Medicine

​​​Dr Nancy Message from Chair.jpgThe Department of Internal Medicine is the largest department at Aga Khan University​. I am tremendously proud of our department and its vital contributions to the overall mission of the Aga Khan University Hospital, Nairobi. I believe that the three key section that define this department include: Patient Care, Resident Education and Research Activities. 

We strongly believe in our core values of caring and compassion to ensure that our faculty and residents always provide top notch care to our patients; care that is evidence based and promotes patient safety and patient satisfaction. Our department is strongly committed to clinical education by providing residents with interactive classroom and bedside evidence based learning in an environment that nurture personal, professional and academic growth. Our faculty, both trained locally and internationally, are expert teachers who provide mentorship and are dedicated to faculty development to further improve their teaching methods. 

We are highly committed to research activities that help define the present and future of medicine. We encourage our resident to be involved in research activities to not only meet their education needs but to also foster an appreciation of basic science as well as clinical research. 

We warmly welcome you to the Department of Internal Medicine and look forward to your training as leaders of the future.​
