History of Dhaka medical College:

Calcutta (kolkata) Medical College was established in 1853, almost a hundred years after the East India Company seized power in India in 1857. In the hundred years since the establishment of the Medical College in Calcutta, no medical college has been established in the subcontinent. In the meanwhile some medical schools were established. In 1953, Mitford Medical School (now Sir Salimullah Medical Collegeg-SSMC) was established.  along with Mitford Hospital,  Mymensingh,Chittagong,Rajshahi and Sylhet Medical Schools were established in 1920.

However, he took the initiative to set up a medical college in East Bengal in 1939. In the year of the outbreak of second World War, the Dhaka University Council submitted a proposal to the then British Government to establish a medical college in Dhaka city. But the proposal, lost in the turmoil of the second world war, saw the light of day at the end of the world war in 1945. The British government decided to set up three (3) medical colleges in krachi,Dhaka,and Madras (now Chennai) in the subcontinent. On this occasion a committee was formed with the then Civil Surgeon of Dhaka Dr Major WJ Virgin and great citizens of the region. Based on their proposal, Dhaka Medical College(DMC) was started on 10 July 1947.

Use of K in batch naming of DMC:

In 1948, students were admitted in all the years. However, in all the years except the 1st year, the students come and migrate mainly from Calcutta Medical College. The 1st year is called K-5, the 2nd year is called K-4, the 3rd year is called K-3, the 4th year is called K-2 and the 5th year is called K-1. The names of each batch of Dhaka Medical College are attached in this series. There are various theories about the origin of this K. According to some, K originated from Calcutta. But before 2001, Calcutta was written in English as Calcutta. According to some, the eleventh letter K of the English alphabet has been selected as the eleventh medical college of the Indian subcontinent.

Initial situation of Dhaka medical College:

WJ Virgin, the head of the committee set up on the eve of the formation of Dhaka Medical College, was entrusted with the responsibility of running the Dhaka Medical College. In the beginning, there was no Department of Anatomy and Physiology, so the students of Dhaka Medical College had to take classes at Mitford Medical School. A month later, Professor Pashupati Basu of the Department of Anatomy and Professor Hiralal Saha of the Department of Physiology joined as teachers and classes started in the 22nd ward of the hospital. There was no lecture gallery or dissection hall then. After the construction of the college building in 1955, that shortage was filled.

Also pioneers in teaching at Dhaka Medical College were Dr. M. Hossain of the Department of Forensic Medicine, Prof. Altaf Ahmed of the Department of Pharmacology, Dr. Anwar Ali and Dr. Kazi Abdul Khaleq of the Department of Gynecology, Prof. Habib Uddin Ahmed and Prof. Humairaf Saeed of the Department of Gynecology Ibrahim, Prof. Major FW Ellison, Prof. E. Von Novak, Lt. Col. Gias Uddin and Prof. Amir Uddin in the Department of Surgery.

current situation of Dhaka medical College :

Dhaka Medical College and Hospital, which started its journey with a single building, now has various facilities on its own 25 acres of land - college building, auditorium, nuclear medical center, student hostel, burn unit etc. Although the first and second year classes were initially held in the hospital building, the present college building was constructed in 1955 for academic activities.
