Life at AKU is not all about the classro​om

Here's what our students have to say about their experience of being developed as leaders and posi​tive contributors to society.

“Being part of the programme was like exploring a whole world of medical education. It was indeed a phenomenal experience that extended from learning the theoretical underpinnings of the core concept to the practical application of these concepts. It is an absolute delight to execute my responsibilities as a clinician educator now as I know what needs to be done and how!"
