As the largest department at Aga Khan University Hospital, we provide adult medical care in 10 different medical fields including Cardiology, Infectious Diseases, Neurology, and Psychiatry. Our faculty physicians are nationally and internationally recognized exper​​ts and leaders in Kenya. All of them have had some clinical training abroad including the UK, US, Canada, and South Africa, and many have had their skills and knowledge recognized by the UK Royal College of Physicians and the American Board of Internal Medicine.

We are an academic department engaged in cutting-edge research and educating the next generation of physicians. By being at the forefront of learning and teaching, we believe we offer the best clinical care in the country and the region. 

At the same time, our focus is always on patient-centered care and we value integrity, professionalism, and teamwork. We are committed to promoting a culture of wellness that extends from the patients we treat to the residents and fellows we train to the faculty we support. We are a family of physicians creating a nurturing and healing environment for everyone which we invite you to join.
