Welcome to Faculty of Medicine – UMST

Maintaining people’s health and alleviating suffering is the ultimate goal of physicians. The “Angels of mercy” have always been the brightest minds, the wisest people, and the hardest workers. To achieve this endeavor, medical students and doctors, alike, pass through tough, narrow pathways; overcome difficult obstacles and tight filters.
To be a good doctor; the learner needs to be a genius, ethical, keen professional and a life-long learner. Challenges in medicine are constantly there. For each patient complain, an arsenal of differential diagnoses exist; which one spots the accurate disease for that particular individual constitutes the secret of the profession for the doctor but a matter of life or death for the patient.

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 and all medical courses are studied in English language.
