• 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.
