Since its inception, the Medical College has been continually striving for excellence in the field of Medical Education. It is in the process of shaping young minds to become future leaders in Health Services, Medical education and Public Health.
The educational strategy is to create a conducive learning environment and guide students to acquire the appropriate knowledge, skills and temperament to practice medicine and be a member of the multidisciplinary health care tea.
Given the focus of the Ad-din Hospital on serving the underprivileged population of Bangladesh, the students get an opportunity to blossom into empathetic doctors dedicated to serving their community.
The college offers a five-year course of study, approved by the Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council (BMDC), leading to a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree from Dhaka University. After passing the final professional examination, there is a compulsory one-year internship. The internship is a prerequisite for obtaining registration from the BMDC to practice medicine.
The college admits only female students. Admission for Bangladeshis to the MBBS programmes at all medical colleges in Bangladesh (government and private) is conducted centrally by the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS). It administers a written multiple choice question exam simultaneously throughout the country. Candidates are admitted based primarily on their score on this test, although grades at Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSC) level also play a part.
