The doctor-patient ratio is still far from adequate in this country of more than 160 million people. Along with the government initiative, private entrepreneurs are also coming forward in the health sector to establish medical colleges and hospitals. The private sector has already made commendable progress in this field. The Government of Bangladesh has rightly laid down some strict criteria, principles and guidelines to follow and standardize the private medical colleges.
Enam Medical College was established in 2003, fulfilling all the criteria set by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Bangladesh Medical & Dental Council and the University of Dhaka. The Government was pleased to give permission for admission of 50 students in the first year MBBS course from the session 2003-2004. Now the admission capacity is 155 from 2015-16 session. The College has also been affiliated with University of Dhaka and also recognized by Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council (BMDC). The training in Enam Medical College Hospital is also recognized by Bangladesh College of Physicians and Surgeons (BCPS).
