About WGO Khartoum:

The Khartoum Training Center was inaugurated in Khartoum, Sudan on January 10, 2015 as a WGO Training Center. The Khartoum Training Center is recognized as one of the few well-established centers in central Africa, especially considering the shortage of ERCP service in the region. The implementation of a Training Center under the umbrella of the World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO) was a logical step and a requirement to move forward and to implement a structured training at a global standard. The service is expected to be easily disseminated into the region, taking notice of an increasing number of applications received 5 at the Training Center from neighboring countries.
