I am very delighted to introduce you to the Medical College for Women & Hospital (MCWH), Uttara, Dhaka, a centre of excellence for medical education. It all began, with 4 visionaries, who dreamed of a medical college exclusively for women and established this college in 1992. The college with a 500 bedded hospital is run by “The Medical & Health Welfare Trust (MHWT)”, a non-political, non-profitable organization.
We have a full time dedicated, qualified and efficient faculty, doctors and staff whose purpose is to provide quality medical education to students, selected according to the government procedure. The faculty members follow modern teaching methods, reflected in our excellent results. Moreover our students are involved in social and cultural activities by participating in annual picnics, study tour s, Bangla New Year celebration, post-Eid get-together, Award giving ceremonies for high-achievers and many more.
This 100% residential college has 2 secure hostels with standard facilities and an in-house gymnasium. There are 2 libraries with internal facilities, one open 24/7. We publish a bi-annual, peer reviewed journal published since 2003, recognized by the BMDC and registered in the ISSN register. Our Medical Education Unit (MEU) is helping the faculty to develop in teaching and learning. We have a well-organized Medical Research Unit (MRU) which provides research opportunities for our doctors and students.
This institute is also recognized by the WHO, MCI (Medical Council of India), Medical Board of California, USA and listed in the World Directory of Medical School and ECFMG (Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates) so that our young doctors are eligible to pursue higher education all over the world.
During this Pandemic Covid-19 era, All the faculties, doctors, and staffs are dedicated to the service of the humanity, as frontliners.
With more than a quarter century of journey behind us, I am very confident that the Medical College for Women & Hospital is one of the most renowned private medical colleges of Bangladesh. I am also proud to see our students coming from home and abroad, go out as doctors with empathy, to serve humanity worldwide. May Allah bless us all and help us develop this institute to a higher level in the future.
