Irregularities in Private medical colleges in Bangladesh August 19, 2007


‘Most of the private medical college in the country are in grave condition’ runs the report in Prothom Alo on 15th August 2007, a leading daily.

Starting in late 80’s there are 32 medical colleges and 8 private dental colleges in contrast to 14 Govt medical college and 1 govt dental college in Bangladesh.

Most of the private medical colleges has no adequate teaching facilities, not enough regular teachers, no proper laboratories, no hospital with proportionate patients, not adequate infrastructures and no transparency of accounts etc.

Though the rules dictate that every medical college should have atleast 250 bedded hospital at a proportion of 5 patients for a student. So for 50 students the college should have 250 bedded hospital and for 100 college should have 500 bedded hospital, but very few have got these facilities.

Again, though the private universities are not allowed to run the medical college but to our knowledge there is private medical college running under private university defying government ban and government is not settling it for long through legal procedures.

Many private medical colleges started without proper permission and many given permission on political ground. Many started with underhand negotiations.

The fees taken in the private medical colleges are not regulated and also the account is not transparent. Where many of the colleges are run by Trustee Board, but the money goes to the individual accounts. Many of the initiatives are absolutely business targeted and over all control of the past Governments were weak.

Where the admission in Government medical colleges is highly competitive, the private medical colleges open up the opportunities for the less meritorious students with the support of their parents’ affluence to study medicine in Bangladesh. With more private medical colleges the scale is becoming heavier on their side.

While in developed countries, the medical education is highly regulated and highly standardized, in Bangladesh it is compromised to the extreme.

And corruption played a important part to develop this compromise. This government should also enquire into this compromise and find out and punish the corrupted individuals who are destroying our medical education and our health system for their own personal gain.

The USTC, only private University which is running the private medical college in Bangladesh defying the Government ban, has many other irregularities such as admitting more than 100 students over the years though only 50 is officially permitted. It has a hospital which has hardly 100 to 150 patients where for 100 students it should have 500 regular patients in the hospital.
It is also admitting large no of foreign students beyound the limit of the foreign quota in excange of huge money. Mislead by propaganda and because of the unrest in their own country, these students after coming to this medical college feel frusted and deprived.

This private medical college is also conducting a postgraduate course in Peadiatrics(MD) without permsission of the Government over the years

The CTG must take actions against all these irregularites and against other substandared private medical colleges.

11. bdoza - December 24, 2008

You can contact BMDC (Bangladesh Medical & Dental Council ) or Ministry of Heath or Directorate General of Health Service to know the information.
You better know from MCI itself.
Or contact the specific medical college and verify their claim.
The ordinary citizen doesn’t know everything.

The negative attitude towards the private medicals or private medical students should be changed.They pass the same exam the public medical students do.They’ve the same question papers.They go through same tough competition.Private medical colleges i recommend:
1.Holy Family Red Crescent Medical College(Best clinical side)
2.Ibrahim(BIRDEM) Medical College(Most qualified teaching staff)
3.Bangladesh Medical College(First private medical college)
4.Jahurul Islam Medical College
5.Dhaka National Medical College
6.Community Based Medical College
7.Jalalabad Ragib-Rabeya Medical College
8.Sylhet Women’s Medical College
I know many private medical students who’ve qualified as doctors in the past few years.Many of them have got government jobs,many of them have been doing their post graduation.You’ve to be hard working otherwise no matter how much meritorious you are,no matter you read in Dhaka Medical College you won’t pass or shine as a doctor.

13. Riyadh - January 15, 2009

By the way,Jahurul Islam Medical College is the cheapest of all!

14. Dibyayan - August 26, 2009

Is the Bangladesh Medical college in dhaka recognised by Medical Council Of India (MCI)?

bdoza - August 26, 2009

Not sure. It is better to ask MCI.

15. Daneal - November 2, 2009

Yes.from this year privet medical admission exam will be highly compatative becase from now privet medical admission exam will be held under Govt. Health organization.Here every student should have that merit which a govt. medical student has.more over if u have only money u can not get chance.on the other hand gov. has taken some rules to prevent to problems which is described by others in the top.

16. Idris Mirza - November 9, 2009

Private medical college have becoma a very profitable business. But at the same time the education should have been upto a definite standard. The doctors from private medical college know nothing so far I visualize. The hospital attached to private medical college are not upto standard and the patient do not like to take the services from there. Those are only for show.

20. beenish - August 23, 2010

is ustc mci recognised? has a passout to undergo screening test?

21. Mirza Idris - August 24, 2010

Now standard of doctors in Bangladesh is of international standard. From many countries students come to under go study medical and dental education. In most of the cases the treatments given are very much accurate.Specially in case of open heart surgery there are almost 100% of survival rate of patients. It is also very cheap in comparison to almost all the countries. Here you will find open heart surgery at $500 in govt.hospital and $1500 at national heart foundation owned by govt. and peoples donation. At private renowned hospital where daily a dozen of bi-pass is done or more costs $4000 or less. And as I have told the survival rate of patients are almost 100%. And doctors come from mostly private and public medical colleges. Bangladesh has recognized those private medical colleges.

The standard and product of private medical colleges in Bangladesh is not uniform. So any organization or hospital who are recruiting them should make the choice on individual merit of the candidates.

22. Mirza Idris - August 24, 2010

Of course it is true. But in course of work the candidate can learn. If they have basic knowledge. And they become very competent.

23. Niki - November 12, 2010

is holy family red crescent medical college a good choice for mbbs?

24. bdoza - November 13, 2010

Check it with the students and faculties.
As far as I know it will not be bad.

25. esha das - December 5, 2010

is bgc trust medical college ctg recognized by bmdc?does a pass out from this institute able to complete his post graduation from abroad??????

26. bdoza - December 7, 2010

As far as I know ,it is recognized by BMDC. Check it with BMDC. But it is still lacking a good hospital for clinical teaching and short of adequate staff for basic teaching.

Post graduation abroad requires some other criteria in addition to BMDC recognition depending on the country and the institution where one like to do the study. U have to search for that. But BMDC recognition is the most basic requirement.

Can any one tell me which medical colleges are best in bangladesh?

28. A K Sarkar - October 13, 2011

Private Medical Colleges must decrease their all costs for meritorious poor students, if they do it they will get many brilliant students and earn reputation–so they should take steps and decision soon.

Can I simply say what a comfort to uncover somebody
who truly knows what they’re discussing on the net. You certainly
understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
More people have to look at this and understand this side of the story.
I was surprised you are not more popular since you most
certainly possess the gift.

bdoza - August 23, 2015

Thank you for your appreciation. The ordinary citizen only loves to express his concern. He bothers least about his popularity. By the way, he himself is a physician.

30. MBBS study in Bangladesh - September 7, 2015

Thank you, I’ve just been searching for information about
this topic for ages and yours is the best I’ve came upon till
now. But, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you positive
concerning the supply?
