Sudan Medical Council accelerates the registration process for Sudanese physicians trained in USA

On March 25th 2014, the Sudan Medical Council approved the following to its’ bylaws:
Physicians who hold
American Board Certification and a valid State License
will be enrolled in the Sudan Medical Council’s Specialist Register
WITHOUT any further assessment

This decision greatly accelerates the registration process for Sudanese physicians in USA who want to practice in Sudan on short or long term basis

SAMA would like to thank the Sudan Medical Council for involving us in the formal consultative process that led to this positive decision that we hope will be beneficial for patients in Sudan

We would also like to thank the following SAMA members who participated in this consultative process:

  • Mohamed Abdulrahim Ibrahim, MD, FACOG; Rockingham, NC
  • Ezzeldin Saleh, MD, FAAP; Raleigh, NC
  • Omer Elamin, MD, FACC; Jeddah, KSA
  • Bushra Ibnauf, MD; Khartoum, Sudan
