It is a great pleasure to write a few words for the web page of TMSS Community Paramedic Institute (TCPI) and everybody is welcome to our institute. We think that to become a community health worker is worthy praise of Almighty Allah to serve human particularly the sick people living in rural areas. From that vision and inner urge TMSS Community Paramedic Institute (TCPI) has been established in 2010 at Bagopara, Rangpur Road, Gokul, Bogra by TMSS. I think that this is the better time for young men and women to enter the profession of community paramedic course. The demand for quality paramedics continues to grow in the country; the profession offers a tremendous variety of career paths and the opportunities both in public and private sectors in the country. Moreover, there is a good scope for private practice.
The institute has been started with qualified and dedicated permanent and guest teachers. The entire faculty members are constantly seeking newer methods of teaching and putting their best efforts so that learning process is facilitated. Students are urged to maintain high standard of their exercise in this institute. The course evaluation is made through regular periodic class test, assignment and term examination as per rules, guidelines and instructions in all years.
I strongly believe that the students of this course would be able to provide healthcare services regarding primary healthcare services and essential services about safe delivery. After completion of this course the learners will be able to get a job in public and private sectors as because this a good scope to be involved in all those sectors. There is also a good demand of those paramedics in our country and there is need about huge paramedics in Bangladesh and they would be able to get jobs in government Community Clinics prevalent in the country.
Anyway, the Community Paramedic Program closes the gap by expanding the role of expert community paramedic personnel. Through a standardized curriculum, accredited institutes will train first responders at the appropriate level to serve communities more broadly in the areas of: ● Primary healthcare; ● Public healthcare; ● Disease management; ● Prevention and wellness; ● Mental health; ● Dental care, etc. Thus, the Community Paramedic Program adapts to the specific needs and resources of each community. I think that it will succeed through the combined efforts of those that have a stake in maintaining the health and well-being of its residents.
I hope, this institute would be helpful and ideal one in the country, especially in North Bengal for producing community paramedics. I do welcome all of you to visit our institute and draw a comment for improving the institute gradually.
