Study Medicine in Latin America and won Gold Medal
I am Amin Zia, hailing from Ayashi a remote village of Ghizer, Gilgit Baltistan. I started my schooling from DJ Middle School Ayashi. Afterward, I came to Aga Khan Higher Secondary School, Gilgit where I completed my matriculation and F.sc Pre-Medical in batch 2001 to 2006.
After my intermediate, I got an HEC fully funded scholarship to study medicine in Latin America. I graduated from the Latin American School of Medicine with a Gold Medal in 2014.
I came back to Pakistan and worked with Government Institutions and Aga Khan Health Services, Pakistan. Currently, I have been selected through Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC) and I am serving in Health Department of Gilgit Baltistan. I am aiming to specialize in Medical Oncology and serve the cancer patients in Gilgit Baltistan and decrease their agony to travel down.
I believe that success needs dedication and hard work. I must say Thank you to AKHSS, Gilgit and its faculty for helping me to achieve my ambition. My role model is His Highness, Prince Karim Aga Khan.
