MD/MS residency Guidelines: Career after MBBS in Bangladesh
What is MD?
MD/MS entrance exam in Bangladesh:
The MD/MS exam is held twice a year. The first thing that happens in April is non-residency. At the same time Diploma and M.Phil exams are also on the same question. However, it is not possible to say for sure whether there will be non-residency this time or not. There will be MPhil.
The number of questions in this exam is 100 and the time is 60 minutes. The residency exam is in November. The time here is 3 hours and the questions are 200. You can participate in this exam 1 year after the start date of the course from the end of your internship.
Why is the residency program different?
- This is a complete and remarkably supervised program. You have to learn every moment from under a supervisor. One-three month block posting in different subjects will make your knowledge more integrated, your training will be more effective.
- Will be graduating from the same institute with a degree for five years. There is no hassle of running around for training. BCS cadres will also get deputation. If you have BCS during the course, you will get maximum three years leave. Come later and join in completing the rest of the course directly. There is no possibility of factionalism, file manipulation, harassment.
- Phase ‘A’ is two years and phase ‘B’ is three years. When phase ‘A’ ends, go directly to phase ‘B’. Unlike non-residency, there are years of Part-1 Basic Science exams and suffering from depression. In this excellent course you will be able to reach the ultimate goal very nicely if you are fairly regular.
- This program has been started in 2013 in several medical colleges outside BSMMU only. So the chances of getting a chance are more now in Bangladesh.
- The program seeks to show a little respect for doctors, in contrast to the world’s “honorary vata” system. Residents are currently getting 20 of thousands.
Not only positive but also some negative have this Residency course ?
- The provision of giving separate certificate as training to the residency has not been introduced yet. This can cause your FCPS Part-1 to hang.
- According to the written rules, employment, practice, examination cannot be given outside. However, the application of this rule has not yet been observed to be strict.
- Who will be considered for the test? Now those who have 37th BCS, will they be able to take the next residency exam?
- Sorry. Participants in the 33rd BCS will not be able to sit for the residency / non-residency examination before the next two years. However, anesthesia and basic science exams can be given after one year of service. There are no restrictions in the case of FCPS.
How many marks of the residency test?
- Number 200, total time 160 minutes. As it was in previous years, there is no reason not to stay this time.
When can the residency test be done?
- Written Exam – Friday, November 26, 20__ at BUET Campus, 9am to 12pm. Date of submission of examination fee is 26th October to 13th November 202_.
