Medical Electives to Sri Lanka

Enjoy endless beaches, timeless ruins and incredible safaris in Sri Lanka

Taking your elective to Sri Lanka will give you a unique chance to experience a brand new health care system. Professionally, you will discover new perspectives and cultural attitudes towards medicine. Working with a local team and fully immersing yourself in local culture.

As an integral part of the local team, you will work closely with other medical staff, learning how to collaborate with people from a different culture and develop a range of new skills. These skills can then be added to your CV and can be applied during your professional career.

For pretty much most of your healthcare course, you would have had all or nearly all your clinical experience in the UK, so what better opportunity than to go somewhere new and experience a completely new and exciting environment.

Our elective to Sri Lanka gives you the opportunity to work in a completely different environment. You will be working with doctors who have been trained differently and who use new methods.

This is a great chance to get out of your comfort zone! You will find yourself practicing your problem-solving and creative thinking skills, as you encounter new challenges in a resource-constrained environment.

Elective specialities include general medicine, surgery, gynecology, pediatrics as well as in ayurveda and naturopathy clinics and hospitals.
