A well formed mind will be able to meet the aspirators of the society and make this world a better place to live in. We, at City Dental College, inculcate the system of education in order to make our students a powerhouse of energy, an ocean of knowledge but also a temple of love and compassion.
It gives me immense pleasure in welcoming, on behalf of entire campus community of the City dental College, the new entrants to this historic Institution. The Institute has a standing of about 23 years, has its roots in the dentistry, laid the foundation of modern dental education and the use of health service development of the country. CDC has rich heritage of past and has its standing as one of the best dental educational Institute in the country. The rich traditions of this historic institution combined with the brand equity of the service system have produced an institution par excellence in CDCH. I invite you to experience the unique environment at CDC, which is a blend of tradition and modernity and is evolving continuously.
As of new, CDC has 15 academic departments offering BDS courses. Admissions to the Under-Graduate courses are made through a nation-wide Joint Entrance Examination organized by the Ministry of Health, Government of Bangladesh and mandatory Internship is the uniqueness of the course. In the Academic Session 2017-18, we had a total student strength of 75 (including 38 overseas scholars), faculty strength of almost 97 and a support staff of about 34. The faculty of the Institute is encouraged to undertake sponsored research and health service consultancy and always looks forward to a healthy and productive interaction with the common people.
CDC has a rich Alumni base that has significantly contributed in the nation building process. The Alumni of the Institute have done exceedingly well in all spheres of life at both national and international levels and brought name and fame for themselves as well as to their Alma Mater. The Institute takes pride in their achievements.
Apart from academic activities, the co-curricular activities, sports, adventure, cultural and social- service activities, form important parts of the life of the students. This importance is well indicated in the spread of facilities at the campus. There is a full-fledged medicine club, the blood donation Club, a very active Cultural Society and one of its kind, the Institute cricket Club, in addition to the regular facilities. Our scientific journal is unique, 7 international editors continuously contributing in our journal. Every Sunday we have seminars for clinical students and trainee doctors. We organize hands on courses once in a month.
All undergraduate, domestic n overseas students may reside on the campus and thereby get full opportunity to participate in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities leading to a holistic personality development.
I welcome the upcoming students to the portals of this great educational institution and wish them a memorable, meaningful and rewarding tenure and emerge as world-class dentist or scientists. I would urge upon them to prove as good human beings and worthy citizens of this great country, Banglsdesh. The senior students are welcome back to the new academic session with renewed vigour and dedication. I welcome everybody to see our impressive campus at Nikunja Dhaka adjacent to hotel Le-Maridian.
We inspire children to achieve their full potential through passionate teaching that develops confidence, curiosity and independent learning within a safe, supportive and inclusive environment.”
Let us join hands in imparting education to our students for creating a better world.
