The Aga Khan University (AKU)’s Departments of Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME), in Karachi and Nairobi have become the first in South Asia and Africa to be accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education International (ACGME-I). ACGME-I is a global accreditation body that verifies that medical education institutions, as well as their postgraduate programmes for residents and fellows, meet the highest academic standards. AKU’s campuses in Kenya and Pakistan are the only institutions in their respective regions to be recognised by the ACGME-I for having the infrastructure, policies, procedures, and support systems to provide top-quality graduate medical education to trainee doctors.
