​​​Message from the Chief Resident​

DSC_5134 F.JPGThe Department of Radiology is one of the busiest departments at the Aga Khan University Hospital Nairobi due to the number and wide range of diagnostic and interventional procedures we do round the clock. We invite you to walk with us during this important journey and your interest in learning more about this program is highly appreciated! We believe we have a strong training program and are constantly looking for ways to make it even better.

As you may know, radiology is a rapidly evolving field which we endeavor to keep abreast with by ensuring that we have state of the art equipment and provide adequate exposure to all the different modalities such us ultrasound, radiography, CT/MRI, PET/CT and soon SPECT/CT. This coupled with our dedicated faculty provides a learning environment that is of international standards. 

Our faculty is also specialized in various radiological subspecialties such as neuroradiology, oncology, breast, head and neck and musculoskeletal imaging. We also have a robust interventional radiology unit that is involved in various image guided procedures headed by highly qualified faculty.

The core goal of the residency program here is to produce radiologists who are not only competent in their field, but also all round with excellent professional skills who will be leaders, scholars and health advocates. This is clearly evident from the large numbers of the alumni who have gone on to become part of faculty within the department as well as those pursuing various fellowships in renowned programs around the world. 

Our vibrant and cohesive resident body also ensures that we work as a team as we gear to achieve our own individual goals.

Indeed, choosing to pursue a Masters of Medicine in Imaging and Diagnostic Radiology at this institution is a splendid career choice!

We wish you the best of luck and look forward to meeting you.
