Medicine Club, Dinajpur Medical College Unit is established in 19 August 1999 to serve the poor and needy people of Dinajpur.

The students of Dinajpur Medical College observed that there were many patients in the hospital, who were too poor to buy their necessary drugs, blood, operation instruments for their treatment. They were very interested to do something for these distressed people. In April 1997, a team came from Mymensingh Medical College to visit Dinajpur. They introduced themselves as a member of Medicine Club which is an academic cum social organization run by medical & dental students. From then some students of DjMC tried to do social activities on the name of Medicine Club.
