BLESSINGS FROM THE FOUNDER & VICE-CHANCELLOR

The Bangladesh Institute of Family Medicine & Research is an Institute of the University of Science & Technology Chittagong. My vision for the USTC is to consolidate our position as an outstanding regional university with a national and international reputation for quality. We are proud to be at the leading edge of a number of high profile initiatives; Family Medicine Diploma is one of them. The one-year long 'Family Medicine Diploma [FMD]' course, originally run by the USTC Dhaka Campus, is run by the Institute.

Despite the phenomenal advances in the field of medicine, science and technology, the role of Family Physicians remains unchallenged and they constitute an integral component of health care system in any country, both developed and developing, The discipline of Family Medicine has become complex, diffuse and challenging. With the ever-burgeoning phenomenon of specialization in medicine, with its associated complex technology and hospital bias, the need for competent, caring Family Physicians is more important than ever before.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Bangladesh Institute of Family Medicine & Research of the University of Science & Technology Chittagong
