Dean, Faculty of Medicine, Dr Mohamed Kardaman
Training to be a doctor in medicine is challenging. The constant advances in diagnosis and treatment of diseases necessitate a balanced curriculum, from teaching good bedside manner, to focusing on technologically oriented techniques in patient-management. Medicine as a discipline is based on science, the art of diagnosis and human touch in patients care. Sudan faces many health problems and these are reflected in the curriculum set by the faculty. With these challenges in mind, the Faculty of Medicine in the University was established in 1996.
To link the institutes of the University of Medical Sciences and Technology with the community by utilising the University’s resources for community development and to participate with the state in building the social, psychological and health status of the individuals in urban and rural areas.
To graduate doctors with excellence in curative and preventive medicine and scientific research to work in all areas in Sudan and abroad, capable of continuously educating themselves and having high medical ethics.
