Welcome to one of the leading medical faculties in Sri Lanka which offers an academically sound, technologically advanced and socially conducive learning environment with a wealth of clinical resources to the study of medicine. Our undergraduate medical course leading to the degree of MBBS runs for five years. It is based on a horizontally and vertically integrated modular curriculum designed to teach basic and applied medical sciences together with a comprehensive clinical program. Our faculty has many globally, regionally and nationally renowned, highly accomplished medical researchers, scientists and clinicians with international collaborations. Clinical training is conducted at the Teaching hospitals Peradeniya and Kandy with support from nearby major hospitals. We have some of the best teaching and research medical laboratories with “state of the art” technology. For the last several years, our students have made it to the top of the national common merit list of medical students’ ranking in Sri Lanka. They have also won many championships in national and international quizzes and other competitive events. Their extra-curricular talents and the social contribution were evident in the extremely successful completion of the 8th Medical Exhibition held recently at the faculty premises.
Through our wide-ranging medical curriculum, we aim to train our medical students and equip them with necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to face challenges in a rapidly changing social milieu.
I extend a sincere invitation to those interested in finding information about our medical faculty to explore our website. Together with my staff, I would be happy to answer any queries you may have.
