Soba University Hospital, an affiliate of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Khartoum, was inaugurated in 1976, with the aim of providing comprehensive teaching and medical services for all the stakeholders. It caters for a wide variety of patient population.
With the expansion in medical care, coupled with ever growing developments in medical education and the rapid pace of technological advances, it was deemed prudent to establish a state-of-the-art centre which combines medical education, training, examination and e-learning facility for all medical professioanls. An ambitious project was launched which resulted in the building of the current facility.


Mission Statement:
"Support and improve the quality of faculty by means of continuing professional development by providing the knowledge and skills to help them attaining outstanding teaching and clinical status. It also aims at providing the student with the opportunity to learn, practise and perfect clinical skills"
There are four major components housed within the centre:
A- Clinical Skills Lab: Is provided with a wide range of manikins which help to augment and consolidate knowledge gained and practice of skills which are integral to successful career in medicine and allied medical professions.


B- E-Learning: this is a purpose- built facility with over 8o computer terminals and full IT back-up. It helps to keep users in touch with this fascinating and novel way of learning, as the profession moves away from the traditional approach.


C- Objective Structured Clinical Examination(OSCE) Halls: These were established following the decision of the Faculty of Medicine Board to adopt this new technique of examination, as it was felt that the old system is eschewed, and riddled with flaws. There are four halls which comprise 60 stations, which help to accommodate large number of candidates and hence shorten the time taken for a successful (and shorter) examination cycle.


D- Continuing Professional Development (CPD): It is the main unit charged with conducting all the training courses, symposia and clinical and medical conferences. As such it has a formidable track record
