CIME AKUH Hosts Educational Trip For KMDC


KARACHI – Medical students from Karachi Medical and Dental College (KMDC), along with HOD Dr Ashraf and Assistant Professor Dr. Sana Adiba, went to the Aga Khan University Hospital for a simulation workshop by Center of Innovation in Medical Education (CIME), led by Mr. Pervez Hashmi and Mr. Ghulam Nabi.

The purpose of the simulation workshop was to make the students familiar with the latest medical technologies being used to assist the diagnosis and treatment of diseases: mannequins and robots.

The participants concluded that it was one of the most knowledgeable, informative, and eye-opening trips thus far, where not only students but also teachers learnt a lot. The trip acknowledged the many advancements in technology which have resulted in creating tremendous changes in the field of medicine and dentistry. By far, AKUH is the only institution that has all the new technology; whether it’s about the high affinity robot, which can respond to pain by crying and screaming, or the Harvey simulator that gives signs and symptoms of almost all heart diseases with simply the press of a button.


The students reported that the experience was immensely beneficial and enabling. They remarked that such workshops and field tours are extremely motivational in terms of academics and inspiring innovation.
