FEW WORDS FROM THE COORDINATOR

dr hasiniElective coordinator is usually an academic from one of the departments. Every coordinator appointed enjoys this 'honorable post' amidst other academic and research activities. Coordinator responds to numerous queries raised by each and every elective student while processing their documents single handed. Most of the answers to your questions cab are given the web page (Frequently Asked Questions) and in the appointment letter that we send to you.

Many elective students do not acknowledge the letter of appointment once the appointment is awarded or fill up the feedback form at the end of the elective programme. I wish to make an open request to all registered elective students to assist us by filling the feedback form (available online or sent to you via email) and help us to improve this programme for future students.

Best wishes,
Hasini Banneheke

IMPORTANT NOTICES
  • Medical students are expected to wear clinical coats inside the wards. Please bring your own clinical coat. We do not provide clinical coats for elective students.
  • Please note that the month of April is a holiday season in Sri Lanka and most of the activities get slowed down during mid April. Hospital will still be functioning, yet the turnover of patients may be lower than usual.
  • Whenever the final year local students are having their clinical examinations, the wards will be out of bound for all students including elective students.
  • Staying beyond the granted time period is unethical and thus such incidents will be reported back to their medical school.
  • Remember to fill and hand over the feedback form to your supervisor at the end of the appointment.
