Abstract: Objectives: The number of postgraduate student in Cardiac surgical discipline is increasing day by day with incremental proportion are measurably suffering from the unnecessary lingering of the present course curriculum. The primary objective of this study was to find out the last 6 years results from a student room survey. This report describes the patterns of published results in postgraduate Master of Surgery course under the University of Dhaka in this discipline. A secondary objective was to find out positive changes that could show us the way of a step ward up-gradation. Methods: Design: It is a retrospective analysis of all examination results of Cardio-vascular & Thoracic Surgery published since January 2008 to January 2013 from the University of Dhaka. In depth interview participants: 11 students of Master of Surgery in Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery. Results: Our result shows, 85.24% students failed to pass part-I of Master of Surgery for Cardio-vascular & Thoracic Surgery course while, 82.18% in part-II and 71.28% failed to pass the final part. Average 2.51 attempts needed to complete each part of the designed course resulted into lingering of course duration for 42.18 months/student. In the thoracic surgery discipline the number of students alarmingly reduced up to 0% in the recent academic sessions. 11 in depth interview opted for a prospective change in the course curriculum and examination format. Conclusions: We conclude that, Master of Surgery is resulting in an unwanted and unnecessary elongation of the study period with poor exam results. Prospective changes are needed to be sought to make the course worth working.
