Dr.Loai Osman achieved pioneering procedure that improve care for patients with suspected lung cancer


ـــــــــــــــــــــــ
UMST is Proudthat Dr. Loai Osman from the First Medicine batch (2001) at The University of Medical Sciences & Technology. Dr. Loai Osman is a Pneumatolog,  received his specialization training in Ireland and then in Britain. Dr.Loai and his Colleagues achieved pioneering procedure at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) to improve care for patients with suspected lung cancer.

The procedure uses an ultrasound probe – Radial EBUS in conjunction with real time Navigational Equipment – to take a sample of patient’s suspected tumour, which will enable hospital staff to diagnose the cancer.

The Hospital has become the first in the UK to establish a service with its own equipment to carry out navigational bronchoscopies, which is the medical equivalent of creating a sat nav map around a patient’s lung to take a biopsy

We at UMST Congratulate Dr.Loai Osman for the huge success, wish him the best of luck and to all successful Sudanese Doctors in UK.

Workshop on Global University Rankings and the Opportunities for Sudan Universities!


In their sustained efforts to keep abreast with technological developments and academic issues and concerns, Abeer Mohammed Kheir Osman, Web Administrator /Head of Computer Labs Unit, UMST and Eng.Ahmed Abobaker, Web Administrator at the Computer Center, attended on Tuesday the 26th of June at the Conference Hall of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, a Lecture on Global University Rankings and the Opportunities for Sudanese Universities.

The lecture was presented by Dr. Nimir Elbashir, Professor of Chemical Engineering & Petroleum Engineering at Texas A&M University and Director of Gas & Fuels Research Center in Qatar. In his lecture Professor Elbashir lecture demonstrated that the quality in university education is measured by the academic institution commitment to excellence in teaching, knowledge transfer, research, and global outlook. He emphasized that he teaching excellence depends primarily on the ability of the universities to facilitate ideal learning environment and to develop effective tools to measure their professors’ role in promoting excellent teaching methods and styles.

Professor Elbashir promised to present two further presentations that will highlight the path to achieving excellence in teaching research and service in academic institutions that will hopefully result in enhancing the ranking of the Sudanese universities.

Lecture Abstract

Quality in university education is measured by the academic institution commitment to excellence in teaching, knowledge transfer, research, and global outlook. The teaching excellence depends primarily on the ability of the university to facilitate ideal learning environment and to develop effective tools to measure their professors’ role in promoting excellent teaching methods/styles, provide the needed mentorship for their students, and measure their preparedness and performance in real life jobs. On the other hand, research excellence is measured by the reputation of the academic institution regarding scientific papers, patents, research income in dollars as well as the number of graduate students (Ph.D. and master) and their impact. Creating globally recognized university require building robust research structure and developing strategy of research dissemination (journal papers and books publications, participation in global conferences, etc.) This presentation will highlight the experience of regional universities in this path. A series of two presentations will highlight the path to achieving excellence in teaching research and service in academic institutions that will result in enhancing the ranking of the Sudanese universities.
