About Us

The Medical Education Office supports the Mission / Vision of the National Kidney and Transplant Institute (NKTI) by ensuring effective, exceptional and outstanding training programs of the Institute’s medical and paramedical personnel. The Office oversees training programs of the different departments and ensures that its highest standards are continuously met by the trainees.

At NKTI, Medical Specialists are always on hand to teach and share their vast clinical experiences and knowledge to the trainees. The Medical Departments through the Medical Education Office are encouraged to explore innovative teaching methods and techniques and develop globally competitive training programs as well as establish local and international linkages.

We have envisioned that all training activities of each department are directed and coordinated towards quality training thru conferences, lectures and continuing improvement of medical/surgical skills and consultant-trainee interaction. Different learning activities challenge trainees to develop their abilities beyond their potentials to prepare them to succeed professionally and deliver quality professional care. As such, the office hopes to produce well equipped, competent and well rounded professionals who provide excellent care and quality service to our patients.
