Doctor of Philosophy in Health Sciences Programme

In October 2015, the AKU School of Nursing and Midwifery introduced a Doctor of Philosophy in Health Sciences (PhD) Programme, the first of its kind in Pakistan.

A PhD programme is the backbone of meaningful and scholarly engagements in any university. It is also crucial for the development of new generations of clinical researchers, teachers, and leaders. The Doctor of Philosophy in Health Sciences (PhD)  programme in the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) at AKU School of Nursing and Midwifery is central to its mission of producing research-based knowledge in health care that is relevant to the developing world and which will have impact on human health from the perspective of nursing.​
