After a long decade the Curriculum for Under-graduate Medical Education in Bangladesh has been reviewed and updated recently (September. 2012) as an attempt to create a need-based and competency based curriculum; expected to be implemented with the newly admitted students of 2012 – 2013 session. Such advancement was aimed to produce competent, compassionate, reflective and dedicated health care professionals.
