About the Postgraduate Medical Education​​ Programme

The Medical College in East Africa is at the forefront of building a new academic community pr​oviding outstanding health p​rofessional education, buildi​ng strong programmes of research that support graduate students and postdoctoral training, as well as offering programmes and services that are relevant to, and have an impact across East Africa.

We have the distinct advantage of being part of an over one hundred year history of service to the East African community through the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) that includes a broad range of community development and healthcare delivery services across East Africa. In addition, we are transforming the quality of health care in the region via the Aga Khan University Hospital in Nairobi where we are building a Faculty of Health Sciences campus clo​sely integrated with the broader health care delivery system of the AKDN.

The university has excellent international partners who provide great strength and opportunity for our growth as an academic health system stretching across East Africa.
