SBV Model for Postgraduate Education
SBV forges ahead in Post Graduate medical education, with the incorporation of the Competency Based Learning and Training Model (CoBaLT) into our post graduate training programmes. It is responsible for setting up of high professional standards of learning and training and ensures training of postgraduates who, can function independently as specialists, researchers and teachers, in the Medical Fraternity, by the end of their course.
This academic model represents a progressive step by the university, with focused ideals towards achieving our Mission, Vision and goals to accommodate for the prevailing needs of our Nation.
