A web-based advanced Covid-19 clinical management course has been launched for Bangladeshi doctors considering the Covid-19 situation.
Health Minister Zahid Maleque on Monday night launched the course, developed by Brown University, USA, based on their internationally renowned course curricula.
The course is aligned with Bangladesh’s national case management and critical care guidelines, and was reviewed and endorsed by a working group of national experts under the leadership of the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).
This free self-learning, pre-recorded course with videos and interactive modules is meant for doctors in Bangladesh who are involved in Covid-19 clinical case management.
It is developed with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the US government’s leading development agency.
Zahid Maleque thanked everyone involved in the development of this online course.
“In recent days, we’re witnessing an escalation of Covid-19 cases. To address this, and as part of our preparedness, this collaborative training course will help all government and private physicians working at the sub-district, district, and tertiary level hospitals to have the best evidence-based clinical knowledge on Covid-19 in Bangladesh," he said.
