Medical Education in Bangladesh for Indian Students

MBBS Study Pattern in Bangladesh

Quality of Medical Education in Bangladesh for Indian Students explained here.

In recent years, medical education in developed and developing countries has undergone profound changes. To cope with these changes, medical schools around the world have attempted to make their curricula more meaningful and relevant to the needs of the time and to produce doctors oriented to the real needs of the community.  

Medical education in Bangladesh has also experienced many changes and challenges. In Bangladesh a set up for undergraduate medical education was continued from the pre-liberation period up to 1988. Then a great change was brought about in curriculum in 1988 by making it more community oriented. Although, it was a combined product of reorientation of medical education and community oriented medical education but a thoroughly revised new curriculum for undergraduate MBBS course was implemented in 2002 in Bangladesh aiming at qualitative improvement in medical education. This new problem oriented curriculum for undergraduate medical education was introduced following the recommendations of medical educationists and it was approved by Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council.

It divided the long 5 years course into four parts by first, second, third  and fourth professional examinations. The students have to face a lot of formative examinations in each discipline. Item examinations (covering shortest content area; e.g. 1-3 topics), card examinations (covering several items; e.g. single body area or system) and term examinations (covering several items and card; e.g. two – three body areas or systems) are three types of formative assessment are held in the medical colleges to enhance intern doctor’s learning and academic activities.

The MBBS students are being taught by lectures, tutorials, practical demonstrations and bedside clinical teachings. Modern teaching aid like OHP, multimedia, models were facilitating the classes of MBBS course. A good number of teachers is also trained on modern teaching and assessment methods.
