Postgraduate Medical Education
Postgraduate Medical Education at AKU strives to instill critical thinking and analysis into its graduates to promote evidence-based health care and research abiding by the principles of ethics and professionalism. Each programme is carefully structured to produce skilled technologists and to facilitate a process of broad professional and personal development.
PGME trainees represent the University in their interactions with patients and colleagues, and are expected to carry their duties and activities in a manner befitting their responsibilities. Trainees are also involved in research activities and work towards building a research culture; they are encouraged to write research proposals and are provided with limited financial support for conducting research projects. Trainees are also provided with financial support to present their research work at national and international conferences, including the annual PGME Conference.
