According to WHO, by 2050, 20% of the world population will be above 60 years old. Against this backdrop and inevitably the need, and demand for prehospital care and rehabilitation is expected to increase. Consequently health care manpower to encompass the needs of the growing population will be needed.

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

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.
