Department Overview:

Cancer has new emerged as a major public health problem in Bangladesh. Day by day number of cancer patients is increasing. But no sufficient oncologist and specialized cancer center are available. At least every government and non-government medical college needs to establish a department of Radiation oncology and clinical oncology as a condition of excellence service and treatment for cancer patient. The department of Radiation oncology (medical oncology and Radiotherapy) shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College & Hospital started their activities since 2008. Only two oncologists (One Associate Professor and one Assistant Professor) are working here. There is no indoor facilities. Only as outdoor basis cancer treatment is going on now. Demand of this Medical College is increasing for their quality service and also presents of multiple national health institution around this medical college.

So a well-established oncology department is now the demand of time in this medial college.
