Medical College and School of Nursing and Midwifery of the Aga Khan University Pakistan

The Medical College was established in 1983, as a part of the Aga Khan University’s Faculty of Health Sciences in Pakistan, and attaches great emphasis to the professional, personal and intellectual development of students, so that its graduates become contributory members and leaders of society. ​​​Our programmes are tailored to international standards in curriculum, student engagement and assessment, and aim to develop clinical competence in community settings and hospitals, as well as the assessment of health and prevention of disease in communities through primary health care programmes.​


School of Nursing and Midwifery, SONAM, is the first academic unit of the Aga Khan University in Pakistan. Founded in 1980, the School has led the way in introducing new academic programmes in nursing and midwifery that prepare students using a blended learning curriculum and simulation-based training at the University’s Centre for Innovation in Medical Education.

SONAM’s collaborations with several public and private sector institutions, regulatory bodies and federations and NGOs within Pakistan and across the globe have enabled us to bring a diverse pool of expertise and to improve nursing and midwifery education and practice within the country. Our graduates go on to join diverse teams of clinical experts, researchers, academicians and policymakers and are able to make an impact on the healthcare landscape.
