Medical Colleges

The Aga Khan University Medical College commenced operation in 1983 as an academic unit of the Faculty of Health Sciences, alongside the School of Nursing and Midwifery. Our faculty, students and staff are devoted to the highest standard of education, scholarship, research, and patient care. Research, in all our academic units, continues to take on increasing importance and we are competitive internationally in a number of research areas.

At AKU our medical students become skillful health care practitioners and influential humanitarians.We ground classroom theory in the latest research and educate students to better understand local health care challenges in the developing world and positively advance public health-care policy in response.​​​​​​​​​​


Our mission is to support research that contributes to the global body of knowledge and advances public policy in response to the real needs of communities and people.
