|Abstract:||This study aimed to assess the teaching of medicine in Arabic at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Gezira, and its impact on the academic attainments of graduates in terms of their final grade point average [GPA]. Of a total of 20 graduation classes, 16 classes were selected, 8 of which [classes 5 to 12] studied in English whereas the other 8 [classes 13 to 20] studied in Arabic. The last 8 classes include all graduates [until January 2004] since the Arabic teaching system was first introduced. The proportion of graduates with excellent grade [GPA 3.5 to 4.0], very good and good grade [GPA 2.50 to 3.49], overall pass grade [2.00 and above] of both groups were calculated and compared, as were the failure rates [GPA below 2.00]. The overall performance of the classes that studied in Arabic was better [P < 0.05]|
