Bangladesh is a densely populated small poor country. Health is one of the basic needs for the people. Healthy people are the active people and can contribute the country’s economic and social development directly and indirectly. Health man power is very scare in comparison with the people. So the effectiveness of health care service institute, medical educational institute is very much required. Previously Medical educational institutions were a few in numbers and were at the main city. So the number of health man power production was not sufficient and the people in the villages were not aware about this technical education and services provided by them. Now the government has increased the number of institutes and gives emphasis to establish these kinds of institutes at peripheral level. To produce sufficient trained health man power and provide health care service to grass root level the government has increased the number of institution and gives emphasis to establish medical educational institution at peripheral level
