North Bengal Medical College (NBMC) is the first private medical college in the northern part of Bangladesh. The college was established in the year 2000 by a group of highly motivated and dedicated local leaders and elites to provide the best medical education, research, and services to the people of this region.
Originally envisioned by Dr. B. C. Roy, North Bengal Medical College and Hospital was established in 1968 as the First Medical College of North Bengal. The planning was executed by Ajit Kumar Panja, the then state health minister. Prof. Ajit Kr. Duttagupta joined as the first official principal of the college which was then known as North Bengal University Medical College. NBUMC was rechristened in August 1978 to North Bengal Medical College & Hospital and the administrative control went from North Bengal University to Govt. of West Bengal.
North Bengal Medical College is an affiliating college under the Medical University of Rajshahi. Its MBBS curriculum is adopted by the faculty of medicine of this university. This college is recognized by The Bangladesh Medical & Dental Council (BM&DC). North Bengal Medical College offers a 5-year medical education course leading to MBBS.

NBMC produced more than 500 teen medical graduates who are now working as graduate and postgraduate doctors in our country and abroad.
