History of DjMC
In the year 1978-79 Bangladesh government planned to establish medical colleges at Bogra, Comilla, Dinajpur, Faridpur, Kushtia, Khulna, Noakhali and Pabna with a view to improve the healthcare services in the country. Keeping this view in mind in the year 1980-81 medical colleges were started functioning at Comilla, Khulna, Pabna and IPGMR (Dhaka). Subsequently the programme was abandoned and the students were shifted to the established existing eight medical colleges. In the year 1991-92 the government felt the need of establishment more medical colleges for medical education facilities in the country and thereby release the burden imposed on the existing medical colleges. Accordingly the government made commitment to establish 5 new medical colleges at Dinajpur, Bogra, Khulna, Faridpur and Comilla. Thus 5 medical colleges had been established in 1990-91 year with annual intake of 50 students each medical college. On 16 August 1992 Dinajpur Medical Colleges started functioning at Dinajpur main town occupying a hostel of general government college and a rented private building named 'Hamana Bhaban'. It was shifted to new building proper at Ananda Sagor area near Dinajpur main town on 1 July 2000. Dinajpur Sadar hospital was used as temporary medical college hospital.
