Dhaka National Medical College
The Dhaka National Medical College inherits her glorious predecessor the Dhaka National Medical Institute, which was established in 1925 as a part of the Non-cooperation movement of the Indian Sub-continent against the British colonial rule, organized jointly by the Indian National Congress and the Indian Muslim League under the Leadership of Mahatma Gandhi, Mawlana Muhammad Ali and Mawlana Shawkat Ali.
Along with other programs, the Non-cooperation movement urged upon the People of the sub-continent to boycott educational institutions established and administered by the British Govt. and to establish National Schools, Colleges, and Institutes for modern scientific education by the local people themselves. Accordingly, two Medical Schools were established in the Bengal Province to produce National Doctors of modern medicine. One such Medical School was at Calcutta, named Calcutta National Medical Institute, and the other at Dhaka, named Dhaka National Medical Institute.
The Dhaka National Medical Institute was established at Dhaka near Bahadur Shah Park on land donated by Zamider Raghunath Das. Many Nationalists donated money for its construction & establishment. The First Governing Body of the Institute was formed under the chairmanship of renowned scientist Sir Prafulla Chandra Roy KBE. The governing body included Nationalist leaders like Sir Khwaja Nazim Uddin KBE, former Chief Minister of the Begnal, Dr. J.C. Ghosh founder of Ayurveda Institute, Shadhana Ausadhalya, Roy Bahadur Kashab Chandra Banarjee, Zamider Jogesh Chandra Das, and prominent persons.
Studying MBBS in Bangladesh for Indian students 2023-24
Bangladesh has increasingly become a prominent destination for Indian students seeking MBBS education abroad. Its top-quality education, similar curriculum to that of India’s medical education system, and the affordable tuition fees make Bangladesh a prime choice. Furthermore, the cultural and linguistic familiarity offers Indian students an edge, eliminating language barriers that are common in other foreign countries. Additionally, the success rate of Indian students from Bangladesh clearing the FMGE (Foreign Medical Graduates Examination) is impressive, signaling the high-quality education they receive.
The Institute started its journey of a four-year medical course (LMF) on modern scientific medicine after matriculation.
A general Hospital for clinical teaching for the medical students and medical services to the local people was also established.
In 1958, the 4 years medical course (LMF) was closed by the then Provincial government of East Pakistan to be replaced by a 5-year medical degree course in the future (MBBS). The Dhaka National Medical Institute could not open the 5-year MBBS course due to the non-cooperation of the Pakistan Govt. From 1965 the Dhaka National Medical Institute became limited to a general hospital for the local people.
In 1971, during the Liberation War of Bangladesh, the Dhaka National Medical Institute Hospital was a safe shelter for the Freedom Fighters of the Liberation War. Just after the liberation of Bangladesh in 1972, the hospital’s condition was on the verge of collapse due to financial crisis and absence of any Administrative Body as the previous Governing Body and the Trustee Board of the Institute were almost absent.
Dhaka National Medical College is Located at 53/1, Johnson Road, Sutrapur Thana, Dhaka.
Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman took initiative by himself to rescue the Dhaka National Medical Institute Hospital and granted a Taka of thirty-five lacs immediately for running the hospital and an Adhoc Governing Body was formed for the Institute hospital under the chairmanship of Mr. M. Sirajul Islam MLA for the smooth administration and development of the hospital. Mr. M. Sirajul Islam took the active initiative to allocate a donation of taka twenty-five lacs from the Bangladesh Assistance Society of India.
A rule was made by the Govt. of Bangladesh for the Dhaka National Medical Institute Hospital (DNMIH) that a Management Board will be formed henceforth for every four years of its proper administration and a yearly financial grant will be allotted for the hospital according to the need assessed by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of Bangladesh. The initial financial grant for the Hospital was Taka two crore yearly. Now it is Tk. Five Crore. In return, the hospital shall treat 40% of its patients free.

Dhaka is the capital and the largest city of Bangladesh, as well as the largest city in the Bengal region. It is the eighth-largest and the fourth-most densely populous city in the world with, as of 2011, a population of 8.9 million residents within the city limits, and a population of over 21.7 million residents in the Greater Dhaka Area. Dhaka is the economic, political, and cultural center of Bangladesh, and is one of the major cities in South Asia, the largest city in Eastern South Asia and among the Bay of Bengal countries; and one of the largest cities among OIC countries. As part of the Bengal plain, the city is bounded by the Buriganga River, Turag River, Dhaleshwari River, and Shitalakshya River.
The area of Dhaka has been inhabited since the first millennium. The city rose to prominence in the 17th century as a provincial capital and commercial center of the Mughal Empire. Dhaka was the capital of the proto-industrialized Mughal Bengal for 75 years (1608–39 and 1660–1704). As the center of the muslin trade in Bengal, it was one of the most prosperous cities in the world. The medieval city was named Jahangirabad in honor of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir. It hosted the seat of the Mughal Subahdar, Naib Nazims, Dhaka Nawabs, and Dewans. Medieval Dhaka’s glory peaked in the 17th and 18th centuries when it was home to merchants from across Eurasia. It was the center of a flourishing sea trade attracting European traders. The Mughals decorated the city with well-laid gardens, tombs, mosques, palaces, and forts. The city was once called the Venice of the East. Under British rule, the city saw the introduction of electricity, railways, cinemas, Western-style universities and colleges, and a modern water supply. It became an important administrative and educational center in British Raj, as the capital of Eastern Bengal and Assam province after 1905. In 1947, after the end of British rule, the city became the administrative capital of East Pakistan. It was declared as the legislative capital of Pakistan in 1962. In 1971, after the Liberation War, it became the capital of independent Bangladesh.
