Every medical professional's (doctors, nurses, managers, technicians) main concern should be the care of their patients. To be able to provide such care they should be competent with evidence based, clinically and cost effective management of patients through up-to-date knowledge and skills, establishing and maintaining a good rapport with patients, their carers and colleagues. Practicing honestly and within the boundary of medical ethics and within the law.
The total number of medical professions and their quality needs constant enhancing. RAHETID, working with the Royal College of Surgeons of England, aspires to arm the medical professionals of Bangladesh and the region with the appropriate tools to meet every challenge of patient care.
RAHETID intends to provide clinical excellence in general surgical patient care through its 40 bedded advanced hospital component, that also boasts a 4 bedded intensive care facility, two modern, innovative operating theatres, and two well equipped endoscopy suites. Its training and education component will be challenging any of its counter parts in South-East Asia with the latest simulation centre, wet-lab, dry-lab, seminar rooms and auditorium with multimedia facilities to run the RCS England surgical training programmes supported by the ISCP, ISTP, short courses, fellowships and all other educational and training programmes.
I see a great exciting time for surgical trainees and students of Bangladesh and the region at RAHETID in the years to come.
