HISTORY OF DEPARTMENT

In 1964 the Faculty of Medicine, Mandalay was upgraded to the Institute of Medicine, Mandalay and first year M.B.,B.S classes were first started. In the academic year 1964-65 two assistant lecturer posts and four tutor posts were allotted for the Burmese Department. In 1973 when all the medical institutes were transferred to the Ministry of Health, the Burmese Department took all the academic duties. However teaching Burmese at institutes of medicine was suspended from 1976 to 1981 when regional colleges were opened. In the academic year 1982-83, direct intake system was adopted again and Burmese was prescribed for the first M.B.,B.S students. In 1992 a lecturer & head post was assigned for the department. In 2000, the new curriculum was systematically drawn by the heads of the three institutes of medicine.
