With great pleasure I inform parents and guardians, that Holy Family Red Crescent Medical College has completed seventeen years of academic performances. The foundation stone of the college was laid by the Honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the year 2000. It has fulfilled its motto by establishing itself as a student and curriculum driven institution.
The college has been successful in producing doctors who are professionally competent, excellent in ethical values and practice, cognizant of community health needs, research oriented, well versed in IT and latest health technologies, capable of meeting the global health challenges and are able to place themselves at national and international levels in a highly competitive environment. This institution offers undergraduate programmes of MBBS & BDS and also post graduate programmes of various disciplines.
This college is run by Bangladesh Red Crescent Society which maintains the universal principles of Neutrality, Impartiality, Independence, Universality, Humanity, Unity and Voluntary services. It prides me to say that it is no more a national institution but rather an international college where students from six different nations are enrolled. It is an honor and privilege to be the Principal of Holy Family Red Crescent Medical College.
