Bangladesh College of Physicians and Surgeons (BCPS)
has been the pioneer in developing postgraduate medical
education and training in this country. The College has
played a unique role in producing specialists in various
disciplines of medical science who are working as medical
teachers, consultants and specialists. Fellows and Members
of the College still constitute the majority of the specialist
manpower in the country. Fellows of the College are also
performing as specialist abroad. The College bears a
heritage to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of
Pakistan (CPSP). The Eastern wing of the then Pakistan,
which is now Bangladesh, had an office of the CPSP, but
most activity was being conducted from the western wing.
Following the independence of Bangladesh in 1971, on the
initiative of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh
Mujibur Rahman, who was the Prime Minister of the
People's Republic of Bangladesh at that time, BCPS was
established by a Presidential Order in June 1972. A key role
was played at that time by National Professor Nurul Islam.
Professor Kazi Shamsul Haque was the first President of
the College. All Fellows of CPSP who hailed from
Bangladesh (erstwhile East Pakistan) were admitted as
founder Fellows of the College.
With tremendous effort from the Fellows, the BCPS was
able to hold the first examination in July 1972. Later on
National Professor Md. Ibrahim, who was at that time the
President of BCPS and was an adviser in charge of the
Ministry of Health and Family Planning, Government of the
People's Republic of Bangladesh, helped to procure a
temporary premises for the BCPS in a house in Dhanmondi,
Dhaka. Historic first convocation of BCPS was held in that
premises in 1980. Professor M. A. Matin, at that time the
President of the BCPS and also the Minister of Health and
Family planning was instrumental in procuring fund for the
construction of the College building at Mohakhali in 1980.
The College was shifted to its own premises at Mohakhali in
January 1982. In the following years, on the initiative of the
Fellows of the College under the dynamic leadership of the
College Council and the Executive Committee, the College
has proceeded further. The examination system has been
continuously updated to keep at par with the development of
medical education and training in developed countries.
Training and examination in many more subjects have been
introduced. Fellowship in sub-specialties was started in
