The training programme in General Surgery at Aga Khan University Hospital was initiated in 1986. In 1988, 2003 and 2022, the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Pakistan, approved the programme to fulfill the requirements to take its fellowship examination.

In April 1990, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow approved the programme for its fellowship examination.
