Our MBBS curriculum prepares graduates to effectively promote health in challenging contexts, and places special emphasis on primary care and public health. Students spend nearly one-fifth of their time focusing on community health and spend significant time in low-income settlements of Karachi as part of the University’s influential Urban Health Programme.

Many AKU graduates have gone on to study, work and teach at the finest healthcare institutions in the world. Many have also remained in or returned to Pakistan, to which they bring, in the words of one distinguished alumni, “ambitions to set new standards for clinical practice, education and research, and to influence academic medicine, health policy and public health”.
