The BSMMU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Sharfuddin Ahmed inaugurated the online appointment system at a function at the Shaheed Dr Milton Hall of the university on Tuesday.

In the new online system, patients can visit the BSMMU website and access the "Online Appointment" tab, enabling them to schedule appointments at their convenience and in their required department.

Initially, 43 departments have been brought under this online service, which can accommodate1,650 patients daily.

The new appointment system allows the patients to book appointments during the following time frames: 8:30 am - 9:29 am, 9:30 am - 10:29 am, 10:30 am - 11:29 am, and 12:30 pm - 1:29 pm.
