Health Desk: May 14, 2017-- Medical curriculum of the country should undergo changes which can help provide world-class education to medical students, experts at a seminar on Saturday said.

They said medical students study non-clinical subjects more than clinical ones which put obstacles in the way of their learning.

The speakers came up with these remarks while addressing a national policy dialogue on dealing with the challenges of quality medical education organised by Power and Participation Research Centre (PPRC) at the LGED auditorium in the capital.

Chairman of the PPRC and former adviser of a caretaker government Dr. Hossain Zillur Rahman chaired the event where Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammed Nasim was present as the chief guest.

In his speech, Mohammed Nasim said, “I have to be under pressure from different parts of society to give approval to private medical colleges.

The government will not compromise on the standards of medical education, he said.

The health minister also inaugurated Healthy Bangladesh, a civic platform to promote solutions, empower drivers.

Senior medical professionals from public and private medical colleges, renowned public health experts, local government representatives and national professors, among others, were present on the occasion.
