Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS) is one of the oldest and the most prestigious universities of Pakistan for the training of health professionals. The graduates of DUHS are known for their high quality of professionalism and clinical knowledge. DUHS has always responded to its social responsibility to the country and has been a trend setter for initiating the most needed programs and courses. Under the dynamic leadership of the Vice Chancellor and his dedicated team, DUHS initiated the Masters in Health Professions Education Program in 2009 from the Karachi campus.

It was felt that the DUHS program is not appropriately catering to the applicants in the North of Pakistan. With this in mind, in 2013, for the first time DUHS started offering a parallel program of MHPE in Islamabad with its international and local faculty.
