The first postgraduate clinical training programmes, were launched following the inauguration of Aga Khan University Hospital in 1985. Since critical thinking and analysis are the keystone of scientific thought and the prerequisite for meaningful scholarship and research, it is essential for any educational programme to encompass aspects such as biomedical ethics, teaching skills, research methodology as well as communication skills.​
