East Darfur: Al Daein University resumes medicine studies

Students of the Faculty of Medicine and General Surgery at East Darfur’s Al Daein University have resumed learning after nearly two years of disruption by war.

Radhi Ahmed Mohamed, a student at the Faculty of Medicine, told Radio Tamazuj that the lectures began on Sunday and were continuing well.

“The number of students was rising on a daily basis, since they heard about the resumption of lectures,” he said.

Mohamed pointed out that the state was safe and stable and appealed to the rest of his colleagues to report for the lessons.

Another student, Amina Abdullah Mohammed expressed her happiness at the beginning of her general surgery studies.

General Surgery Consultant Dr Mahmoud Daqlash said that he was assigned to teach surgery courses. He said the studies would continue for 12 weeks and cover general surgery, urology, pediatric surgery, and vascular surgery.

“We will also cover clinical and practical cases at the Al Daein Hospital and in the Skills Laboratory in the college,” Dr Daqlash added.

Sudanese universities closed following the beginning of the April 15, 2023 war between the Sudan Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces in the capital and in several other states.

Due to insecurity, the universities resorted to virtual learning, with the exception of Al-Daein University, which has now opened its doors to students.
