The school was made a medical college in 1962. To acknowledge the contributions of the Nawabs, the college was named after Nawab Sir Salimullah (1871-1915). Until 1957 the License of Medical Faculty (LMF) degree was offered from this college. During 1963-1972 condensed courses for MBBS degree was offered. In 1972 it was upgraded as a full fledged medical college and the first batch students for MBBS degree enrolled in 1973. The civil surgeon of Dhaka was in charge of both the college and the hospital until 1974, when a principal and a superintendent were appointed for the institutions. The superintendent was made the director of the hospital in 1984.
The college offers about 25 courses at the postgraduate level. It is located at Mitford Road, Babubazar, Dhaka, Bangladesh. The medical college consists of following departments: preclinical (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology), paraclinical (pathology, microbiology, forensic medicine, community medicine, pharmacology), clinical medicine (general medicine, psychiatry, neuromedicine, nephrology, cadiology, sexual-skin-and-venereal diseases), pediatrics, surgery (general surgery, orthopedic surgery, pediatric surgery, neurosurgery, cardiothoracic surgery), gynaecology and obstetrics, ophthalmology, otolaryngorhinology, anesthesiology and diagnostic (clinical laboratory, radiology and imaging).
The medical college possesses a 600-bed general hospital including OPD and IPD services in the above disciplines and an integrated emergency deptt. 175 students with pre-medical A-level education are admitted each year through open competitive examination for undergraduates. Students are awarded undergraduate MBBS degree after five years' study in college and hospital and three professional examinations (first after 1.5 years, second after 3.5 years and final after 5 years of admission) under the University of Dhaka.

Mitford Hospital, established in 1820, named after Sir Robert Mitford, collector of Dhaka and a long-serving judge of the Provincial Court of Appeal. During his time, there was an alarming cholera epidemic; at the height of it 150 to 200 persons died daily in Dhaka. Medical facilities were inadequate. Mitford was distressed to see the suffering of the people. Before his death in England in 1836, he bequeathed the bulk of his property (about Rs 800,000) to the government of Bengal for benevolent works in Dhaka including building of a hospital.
The hospital, in addition to its wards, accommodated lecture halls, dissecting rooms, and an outpatient department. The hospital provides general as well as specialized services. It is a tertiary level hospital in the hierarchy of health in Bangladesh. It occupies an oblong area of about 12.8 acres (52,000 m2) of land on the river bank and the hospital complex comprises more than 14 blocks of no particular architectural significance but historically important and eventually of utilitarian character. Most of the blocks were originally single-storied and now have been raised four- to 10-stories. The hospital provides indoor and outdoor treatments as well as pathological and diagnostic services. It serves about 2,500 outdoor patients daily. Though as of 1999, the hospital had 600 beds (of which 240 are paying) but more than 1000 indoor patient remain in the hospital most of the time.
During the later part of British India, it was felt that the people of the north eastern region needed the services of qualified medical personnel. The then Campbell Medical School of Calcutta and Mitford Medical School of Dhaka were unable to cater the needs of the growing population. With this background the third medical school for the region, was established in 1924 in Mymensingh, by the Earl of Lytton, the then governor of Bengal. The Lytton Medical School was to run a four-year course of Licentiate of Medical Faculty (LMF). This course of LMF continued till 1962, when it was upgraded to a five-year undergraduate medical course under Dhaka University and the school was renamed as Mymensingh Medical College.

Along with other programmes the Non-Cooperation Movement urged upon the People of the sub-continent to boycott educational institutions established and administered by British Govt. and to establish National Schools, Colleges and Institutes for modern scientific education by the local people themselves.
Accordingly two Medical Schools were established in the then Bengal Province for producing National Doctors of modern medicine. One such Medical School was at Calcutta, named Calcutta National Medical Institute and the other at Dhaka, named Dhaka National Medical Institute.
The Institute consisted of: 1. A four year medical course on modern scientific medicine (LMF) after Matriculation.
2. A general Hospital for medical services to the local people.
In 1958, the 4 years medical course (LMF) was closed by the then Provincial government of East Bengal to be replaced by 5 year medical degree course (MBBS) after I.Sc.
The Dhaka National Medical Institute could not open the 5 year medical degree course (MBBS) due to non-cooperation by the then Pakistan Govt. Body was formed for the Institute Hospital under the chairmanship of Mr. M. Sirajul Islam MPA for the smooth administration and development of the hospital. Mr. M. Sirajul Islam took active initiative to take the donation of twenty five lac takka from Bangladesh Assistance Society of India.
From the very beginning the Governing Bodies and the Management Boards of the Dhaka National Medical Institute Hospital proposed and moved for re-establishing one Medical College with the DNMIH. At last in 1994 under dynamic leadership of the then chairman of the Management Board of the DNMIH Mr. Sadeque Hossain Khoka MP, the long expected Dhaka National Medical College came into existence.GCHGFHGHGFHGFHFGHF
