Patuakhali Medical College is an educational establishment that is located at Patuakhali. On 01 January, 2014, it was first put into operation.
In 2014, the Bangladeshi government opened Rangamati, Jamalpur, Manikganj, Tangail, and Sirajganj medical colleges in addition to Patuakhali Medical College. Training started in 2015.
In 2015, college students held a protest requesting for the “carry on” examination method to be brought back. The first, second, and third professional exams divide the Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree program into four parts. One of these tests that a student fails may be retaken six months later. Students might continue attending classes in the following academic session while getting ready to retake a test under the 2002 “carry on” system. Students studying medicine were strongly in favor of this approach, but teachers were fiercely against it.
In 2013, the Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council abolished “carry on,” which permitted students who failed a professional exam to drop out of school until they passed it, losing up to a year in the process
