When I was at medical college
This is a clear indication that now more than ever women are entering the medicalprofession. “Mind you these women are here because of their merit”, I emphasizes. In the highly competitive world of the medical profession over the years you can see that there has been a remarkable and notable increase in the participation and performance of women. Due to the nature of the profession there is less discrimination faced by women. The new-generation doctors are more assertive, freer and more open-minded than we were at that age. They are professional and most of them are quite career-oriented”.However points out that there is still some lacking in the overall training of young doctors. “Earlier. It was essential for doctors to go abroad for their post-graduate degree in order to get a better exposure and acquire a more professional, culture orientation in dealing with patients. But nowadays due to access to such post-graduate degrees here in Bangladesh many women opt for a degree in Bangladesh rather than leave their families and go abroad. This limits their perception and vision about how treatment of patients should be, especially. In case of human patient dealing”. As there are no such specialized training opportunities in Bangladesh, we believe that it is essential to know what is happening around the world.
Her advice to the new generation of young women doctors is: “keep up to date with knowledge regarding technology and research. And if you can, try and go to international seminars and keep abreast of new treatment methods in the hospitals abroad. Try to make sure you keep pace with the rest of the world”.
