The UofK (former Kitchener School of Medicine) was historically the first professional medical school in Sudan(opened in 1924). It remained to be the sole medical graduating institute until it was succeeded by the first batch of medical school graduates from Gezera  university medical school in 1984. 
Throughout its nearly 100 years, the faculty of medicine continued to graduate highly qualified, competent and dedicated doctors to their different chosen medical fields, their faculty and community at large. The alumni's exceptional qualities equipped and enabled them to perform duties that aided their faculty in overcoming training, economic, political and humanitarian obstacled throughout the history of the country which included famine, wars and instabilities as well as social upheavals and turmoils. The faculty suffered but was able to rise above all upheavals by the support of its alumni. 
The alumni contributed to the many social, political and humanitarian missions in the Sudanese history and continue to play a pivotal role in Sudan. These were nurtured and enhanced by the motivating environment provided in the medical school for the undergraduate students to practice extracurricular activities and hobbies in order to widen their horizons and improve their personalities, self confidence and leadership qualities.
The faculty encouraged the senior graduates tutor and guide the undergraduates in running outreach clinics in rural areas all across Sudan as a voluntary activity . It also established structured community based training programs for undergraduates as part of the rural residency program in their fifth year (community medicine). This prepared them to maintain their unwavering support for community health and actively participate in all health crises in Sudan using available resources, such as financial and logistical support and strategies for disaster risk reduction.
The size of newly graduates from medicine in the university varied and progressively increased since its establishing in 1924. The first batch of graduates was in 1928 and consisted of eight graduate doctors. This number started increasing especially with the help of a funding trust founded by Albaghdadi for ensuring that poor students were able to receive economic support and bursaries.
The numbers reached 40 graduates by the 70th with no more than 2 female doctors each graduating year. However, the number of female medical students rose exponentially until it reached 1:1 in year 1993, and 2:1 in year 2009.
