National Dialogue on Quality Challenges in Medical Education

Quality Challenges in Medical Education

Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is one of the most significant of the post-MDG goals embraced by the global community. Bangladesh has achieved many successes on the health frontier particularly in the areas of preventive health-care and communicable diseases.

As Bangladesh moves up the economic scale, the health sector challenge also marks a shift towards curative health-care and non-communicable diseases. Of particular importance here is the quality of medical education that alone can ensure a quality health sector work force. There are emerging concerns on quality that require urgent engagement by faculty, regulators, policy-makers and other relevant stakeholders to find innovative and effective way forward.

Following a series of brainstorms and in partnership with the Directorate of Medical Education and HMPD, we have planned for a national dialogue on quality challenges in medical education, in particular under-graduate education, on Saturday, 5 April, 2014 at the LGED Auditorium (Level 2) at 9 a.m. The event will be structured into a 3 hour open dialogue followed by a one-and-half hour Policy Panel session.

Mohammad Nasim, MP, Honourable Minster for Health and Family Welfare, will grace the policy panel session as the chief guest. Academic, management and policy leaders of the health sector as well as a cross-section of social stakeholders will participate. Executive Chairman of PPRC Hossain Zillur Rahman and Director of Medical Education & HMPD, DGHS Prof. Dr. A B M Abdul Hannan invited the stakeholders and media personnel.
