The improving effect of these on the lives of poor
and deprived people provided me the incentive to think
to do some thing for teeming millions of the region
who were suffering for lack of health care facilities.
It became my cherished dream to establish a medical
college along with a hospital which will produce a
group of medical graduates with best possible professional
knowledge and training with high moral character and
an attitude of service above self. It will also provide
medical care to the suffering people. I have put my
time, energy and resources to accomplish this dream.
I am happy now that the college along with its attached
1000-bedded hospital has been established with all
modern facilities to impart knowledge and training
to the students and to provide health care facilities
to the needy. The college now possesses a team of
highly qualified, experienced and devoted teachers
and staff who are putting up their best efforts to
produce well qualified and trained medical graduates
with high ethical values to serve the suffering humanity.
I am confident that the students of the college will
take advantage of these opportunities to acquire knowledge,
training and moral values with devotion and determination
to make themselves the best in the field of medical
profession and earn laurels for themselves and the
Though it is gratifying that a full-fledged medical
college and hospital have been established, the time
has not yet come to be contented. We must strive to
make it a centre of excellence in education and treatment
with facilities for post-graduate training and study.
I shall do everything possible to achieve this goal.
No establishment of this dimension can be completed
without the help of many individuals. Hence thanks
and gratitude are owed to all of them for help in
various ways in the completion of this institution.
I wish to acknowledge with enormous gratitude Prof.
Md Abdur Rahim Chowdhury, Prof. Syed Luqueman Ali,
Prof. Md. Kamruzzaman, Dr. Moinul Karim, Dr. Wazir
Ahmed Chowdhury and Mr. Mufazzal Karim for providing
help in their areas of expertise. I also wish to offer
salute to Mr. Wali Tasaruddin J.P.M BE, Dr. Akram
Syed OBE for their selfless contribution and advice
in making of this college and hospital.
Finally I acknowledge my wife late Mrs Rabeya Khatun
Chowdhury for her contribution in accomplishing this
gigantic task. She is no longer with us but I believe,
her memory and dedication will encourage us to build
this college a unique one.
I am sure if we continue our efforts sincerely this
college will make a definite mark on the national
health care system. May Allah bless us.
