Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) was established in 1998 as the first medical university of the country after the name of the father of the nation. Since its inception, BSMMU has been serving as the leading medical institution that contributing significantly in growth and improvement of postgraduate medical education in Bangladesh.

This enabling environment ensures that BSMMU graduates are knowledgeable, competent,work-ready and caring healthcare professionals who are critical thinkers, reflective and yet proactive.


As “living the values” is an integral part of BSMMU, the University also places emphasis on active involvement in the community to inculcate a caring attitude among residents, trainees and staff, which is reflected in the camaraderie among them and the community.

In order to cope with the dynamic changes in healthcare services and the need of the communities, the University has opened many fascinating courses leading to attractive career paths.
