Principal’s Welcome Message


It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the web page of the school of Post Basic Midwifery UDUTH Sokoto. The school commenced training on 9th March 1999. The vision of the founding fathers is to produce the needed skilled manpower that will make maximum impact in the reduction of the high indices of maternal and child mortality in the North-West geopolitical region of Nigeria.
The North-West geopolitical region of Nigeria is one of the Zones recording high incidences of maternal mortality in the country. Very few institutions exist with adequate capacity for the training of basic midwives hence the training of midwife specialists at Post Basic level became an added advantage. The post Basic Midwifery programme prepares professionally competent and versatile registered nurses to provide high level of care to individuals in homes, communities, health centres, hospitals and clinics through initiative and self-directed learning.
Similarly, the school has grown over the year to be an institution of repute that competes favourably well with world class standard.  Here, at SPBM, we consider learning as an ecosystem that involves interaction between students, educators, clinicians and community in a friendly atmosphere. The school enjoys the benevolence of seven dynamic committees whose energies are directed to the achievement of the goals and objectives of the programme.
It is gratifying to note that the school has presented eleven (11) Sets of gruadants with excellent results at the professional examination of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria.
In line with our overriding objectives to promote safe motherhood and reduction of maternal mortality, it is worthy to note that within our few years of existence, we have contributed significantly to combacting the menance of maternal mortality in the region. Here our emphysis is not only on high  grades but production of clinically skilled birth attendants.
Once again on behalf of the academic, non-academic and students of this noble institution, I welcome you to web page and urge you to constantly check the site for updates.
