It is really astonishing how fast the medical sector has improved over the years. Nowadays most of the diseases are curable just because of the advancement of medical science. With the world the medical sector of Bangladesh has also improved very much. There are a lot of private and public hospitals available in Bangladesh which provide international class treatment and the expenses of these hospitals are pretty low compared to their services.
But in today’s world well qualified doctors and medication is not enough for a proper treatment. To get a proper treatment or provide a proper treatment many other things are necessary such as modern surgery equipment, modern medical machinery and accurate diagnostics testing tools. Diagnostic tests play a very vital role in the field of modern medical science. Without the diagnostic tests it is very much difficult for the doctors to identify the true nature of diseases.
Like the rest of the world Bangladesh has also improved in the field of medical science. The Bangladeshi people do not rely upon the neighboring countries or do not need to go abroad to seek medical assistance anymore. Many world class hospitals are now operating in Bangladesh and providing excellent treatment. It is a very difficult job for the patients to travel abroad for medical purposes and the process is very much costly too.
After the world class hospitals emerged in Bangladesh then the people of Bangladesh breathe a sigh of relief. In the past the people of Bangladesh used to spend USD 200 million in the foreign countries for medical purposes but the time has changed and the tendency of going abroad to seek medical attention has decreased by much.
The PG hospital or the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) is one of the finest hospitals of Bangladesh. This medical institute was founded back in 1965. BSMMU was established to serve as a medical graduate university. In BSMMU only graduate medical degree is available it does not offer any undergraduate medical degree.
The former name of this institute was Institute of Postgraduate Medical Research and the name was changed to BSMMU back in 1998. BSMMU is located at Shahbag, the prime location of the capital city of Bangladesh. It is one of the biggest hospitals of Bangladesh and the bed count here is 1900+.
A lot of people of Bangladesh are still living in the rural parts of the country and most of the people do not have the money to seek medical treatment at the private hospitals as the private hospitals are very much expensive. So, most of the people of Bangladesh have to rely on the public hospital for good treatment at very low cost. BSMMU is one of the few public hospitals in Bangladesh which can provide world class treatment at a very low cost. BSMMU is a well-known name in the medical sector of Bangladesh.
The doctors, nurses, surgeons and all the other medical staff of BSMMU are top notch. But another thing is very important in the field of treatment these days and that is modern diagnostics technology. BSMMU has the latest technology available for all the tests and the tests costs very less compared to any private hospital or diagnostics center.
