Exposure to pre-hospital training in countries such as Australia, India and locally has trained them to be competent, disciplined paramedics saving lives anywhere anytime.

In the field of research, students will be exposed to research activities not only in AMU but also in research projects conducted at hospitals and other related fields. In line with the expectation to produce intellectual and competent graduates. AMU encourages student’s involvement in conference and workshops organised either locally or internationally so as to expose them to a wider scope of the society they are to be involved in their future career.

According to WHO, BY 2050, 20% of the world population will be above 60 years. Against this background   unavoidably the need and demand for pre hospital care and rehabilitation is expected to increase. Consequently health care manpower to encompass the needs of the growing population will be needed.

In this light, AMU offers innovative educational program to meet the various demands and needs of society in the areas management, clinical and health related scientific filed.

AMU is one of the pioneer universities in producing health care professionals. Currently we are diversifying into the pre-hospital, rehabilitation, diagnostic imaging and therapeutic oncology care.

Degree and diploma holders in these fields have the advantage of fulfilling the gap that we will be encountering to maintain the ratio of a health care personnel to the total population.
