|Title:||Evaluation of the community-oriented medical education in two medical schools in Sudan|
|Abstract:||An evaluation was made of the extent and impact of community-oriented medical education in the Khartoum and Gezira medical schools in the Sudan. Competency of graduates 3-7 years after graduation and health indicators of the provinces of both medical schools were examined. Gezira had a more community-oriented curriculum although it was deficient in other aspects. The degree of partnership of both schools with the Ministry of Health and the community was weak and the schools' research programmes had no community orientation. Graduates had similar profiles of job satisfaction, community service, knowledge, attitudes and self-learning. Although Gezira had more emphasis on community medical education, graduates of both schools adapted themselves to the environment dictated by the health care delivery system and cultural values|
