Thank you for visiting our webpage and for taking time to find out what we do here at Dow Institute of Medical Education (DIME). By the grace of Allah, we are very grateful to the Almighty for what we have achieved in the past one year and what the institute continues to achieve on daily basis. DIME expends many resources, time, thought and energy on training the teachers, the postgraduates and has now even included the undergraduates to be benefitted by the scope of its activities. We expanded because we are committed to the teaching mission and comprehensive development of the competent physicians in this challenging and ever-changing healthcare environment. We provide the infrastructure, support and guidance about Medical Education to help you navigate successfully through your career. To achieve that end, we have our fully functional Masters in Health Professions Education (MHPE) in place as well. The MHPE has both distance learning and face-to-face components.
