Cox’s Bazar Medical College does not have any hospital of its own. Students have to go to District Sadar Hospital twice a day for clinical classes in the morning and evening. For this, students have to spend four hours every day on the roads. This has been going on for the last 12 years.

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare established Cox’s Bazar Medical College in Jhilongjha union of the district in 2008. Sadar Hospital is located in the city. The distance of Medical College from Sadar Hospital is eight kilometers. Students have to pass through the city to reach the hospital from the college.

Speaking to Prothom Alo, Professor Farhad Hussain, Dean of Cox’s Bazar Medical College, said, “3rd, 4th and 5th year MBBS students will have to attend clinical classes twice every day, in the morning and evening. It takes about an hour every time to reach the hospital from the college. In total, students have to spend at least four hours on the streets to attend clinical classes twice a day. This is putting immense pressure on the students.”
