It is with immense pleasure that I inform parents and guardians that Holy Family Red Crescent Medical College has completed twenty years of academic performances. The foundation stone of the college was laid by the Honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the year 2000. The institution has fulfilled its motto by establishing itself as a student and curriculum-driven organization.
The college has been successful in producing professionally competent doctors who have excellent ethical values and practice, are cognizant of community health needs, research-oriented, well versed in IT and latest health technologies, capable of meeting the global health challenges, and can place themselves at national and international platforms. Our institution offers undergraduate programmes of MBBS and BDS and postgraduate programmes of various disciplines.
Our 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 not only a national institution but also an international college as students from six different nations are currently studying here. It is an honour and privilege to be the Principal of Holy Family Red Crescent Medical College. We have a host of resources and facilities within the framework of Bangladesh Medical & Dental Council to help us achieve our set goals. We utilize the latest modes of teaching and assessment methods. We also devised a human development system-based curriculum focused on personal, professional and ethical development. Furthermore, we possess the best teaching faculty members who are trained at home and abroad and a dedicated supporting staff.
I am also happy to inform you that the college has a committed and diligent team of clinical coordinators to run the academic programmes as per schedule. Regular internal assessments and correlation seminars and symposium are conducted. The CME programs have contributed to making sure that we have an up to date knowledge base by sharing experiences.
The college is unique among institutions in the country as we offer you a magnificent purpose-built campus located at the heart of Dhaka city, spread over an area of 8.5 acres of land, close to Ramna Park, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU), Bangladesh Institute of Research and Rehabilitation in Diabetes, Endocrine and Metabolic Disorders (BIRDEM), and Pan Pacific Hotel Sheraton. Our institution is free from noise, pollution and politics. Holy Family Red Crescent Medical College is a multi-speciality modern teaching hospital, well equipped with the latest lab facilities, to make your stay enriched, meaningful, and memorable. The full-fledged Dental Unit, with all the basic and clinical departments, is functioning in the premises of the main campus. Its facilities are unmatched in qualification and number by any other private dental institutions in Bangladesh.
The IT department is helping the students and teachers to acquire the latest scientific knowledge in medicine. Furnished hostels are maintained properly for a safe and comfortable stay for the students. Healthy food outlets are available within the college campus. For financial requirements, an automated bank has been established within the academic campus. Besides, a good number of clinical materials and an impressive library with thousands of relevant medical books, journals, apart from local ones, are also available. Lecture theatres are air-conditioned, and the laboratories and museums are fully equipped.
We practice strict discipline to create a pleasant and healthy atmosphere but also maintain a warm, participatory and friendly learning environment. Our graduates are eligible to appear in any licensing examinations like USMLE (USA), UKMLE/PLAB (UK), MCCEE(Canada), AMC (Australia), and others and any international postgraduate examinations such as MRCP (UK), MRCPI (Ireland), FRCS (UK), MRCPCH (UK), MRCOG (UK), etc.
We firmly believe that to become an efficient doctor, one must acquire many qualities. Thus, sports, extracurricular, social and humanitarian activities are equally encouraged alongside academic activities. We are going to have a well-prepared playground, canteen, doctors and students’ lounges, a new library, a fully-equipped student dry skill lab, and health club very soon with a fine touch of modern architecture.
At Holy Family Red Crescent Medical College, we believe in creating your tomorrow today. Come join us in our strong will and desire for quality education and a bright future. We assure you that your efforts will not go in vain in the march towards creating the most efficient and prominent world-class groups of doctors.
