BGC Trust Medical College is the translation of a dream of Engineer Afsar Uddin Ahmed, a son of Kanchanagar, Chandanaish,Chittagong, to pioneer the cause of highest quality medical education and establishment of a model hospital for the poor and under privileged rural people. It is the translation of the BGC Trust theme – ” Health & Education, the keys to national prosperity & service to humanity” – with an ambition to establish a medical faculty, BGC Trust applied to the Government of Bangladesh for an University that will have the medical faculty in Feb, 2001.

After being inspected by different committees of the University Grants Commission, Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health, the Government gave permission to run a medical college instead of a medical faculty under BGC Trust in June 2002. On the ground that, it is a national policy of the government not to leave the technical and the very vital education like medical education in the hands of Private Universities. In the same permission letter, in order to run the medical college the government also gave the directive to register the BGC Trust Medical College Affiliated with Chittagong University and Bangladesh Medical & Dental Council (BMDC).
