Further Information: 

I am a Sudanese doctor. I graduated from the University of Khartoum, Faculty of Medicine, in 2017. My father has always been an inspiration to attend medical school. My goal is to be as great a physician as he is. My experience during my clerkship in medical school has further confirmed my interest in internal medicine, as it is the only field that satisfies my curiosity. Furthermore, during my internship,I came across diverse medical problems that honed my clinical judgement and my approach to diagnosing and managing medical emergencies effectively. I completed a 1-year internship at Federal Ministry of Health Sudan Hospitals in 2018. I have improved my bedside skills clinically while serving as a general practitioner at Aljomaih Renal and Dialysis Centre. I kept myself occupied by enrolling in numerous critical and emergency care courses. I had the chance to put what I had learned into practise when I worked as an ICU resident at the Universal COVID-19 Treatment Centre during the COVID-19 pandemic. This sparked my interest in critical care as a subspecialty because I like the challenge of working with a multidisciplinary team to solve critical cases and deliver comprehensive care.

I have achieved many successes on my way to achieving my dream of becoming a great physician. I have passed the MRCP (UK) Part 1 and Part 2 written exams and have passed the Part 1 Internal Medicine exam in my home country. I am currently in my third year of the internal medicine training programme at the Sudan Medical Specialisation Board. Furthermore, My primary goal as an internal medicine registrar is to advance my clinical knowledge and strengthen my critical thinking skills in different clinical settings to provide optimal patient care. The long-term career goal is to practise in an academic medical centre affiliated with a school of medicine, combining clinical practise with both didactic and experiential teaching experience. I want to pass on what I learned to future medical graduates in Sudan to further flourish the field of critical care in my home country.

Critical care is both a challenging and rewarding profession to study. This M.Sc. from a world-renowned university, the University of Edinburgh, is a unique opportunity to engage in research-proven practise, contribute to my personal, professional, and academic development, and will surely benefit my current clinical practise, my future career goals in internal medicine, and the general patient care and management.

I am very grateful to receive the 100% scholarship provided by the prestigious institution, the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh. It is a great honour, and I look forward to the programme.
