Reaching health care to every citizen is a millennium development goal and Bangladesh has achieved great success in this. The present government has developed the healthcare system from union Parishad to Upazilla, District, Divisional level through community health clinic, Upazilla health complex, District & Divisional Hospital, and Medical College Hospital both government & private. Doctors and supporting healthcare professionals like nurses, Paramedics, auxiliary staff, and Technologists are the backbones of the healthcare delivery system. At present, the doctor population ratio in Bangladesh is only 1:3125.
Till now the available seats in medical colleges, public & private sector together is far short of meeting the requirement of the country. In our country, a large number of students are willing to take part in the health care system, which is evidenced by the large number of applicants for admission tests in medical colleges. Unfortunately, most of the eligible candidates are deprived of the opportunity of getting admitted to the medical colleges of Bangladesh due to a lack of enough seats: This results in
- 1. Career planning of the eligible candidates, whose desires and dreams were quite appropriate and invaluable to the needs of the country.
- 2. Migration of thousands of students for studies abroad, mainly in the neighboring countries resulting in a constant drain of the national economy for supporting studies.
- 3. Social strains in the families concerned.
- 4. Long-term deleterious consequences on national health care delivery.
- 5. Dependence on other countries for education and health care delivery. The overall impact overshadows our image and dignity as an independent nation.
The cost of medical education is higher in developed and developing countries in comparison to Bangladesh. The Ministry of Health has sanctioned 50% of the total seat for admission of foreign students in private Medical colleges with the existing facilities we can admit foreign students who can avail of quality medical education at an economically competitive price.
