Elective students will work in a large hospital on the outskirts of Colombo. You will gain a great deal of valuable work-experience alongside some of the most skilled physicians in the country.
In developing countries, students are likely to encounter diseases and conditions that are rarely seen back home. Due to the limited resources available in the countries in which Projects Abroad works, our medical colleagues are always glad of extra help. This is likely to come across in the way you are received by the staff in the clinics and hospitals where you work, as well as the patients you work with.
As an elective student you will have acquired considerable knowledge and skills from your training so far. During your placement you will shadow one of our supervising doctors and/or dentists who will be keen to test out your knowledge, as well as giving you the benefit of their training and experience.
