Are you a Doctor, Nurse, or Med Student? Your skills are desperately needed in Sri Lanka!

This essential program supplies much-needed medical volunteers on placements in Wattala, a suburb of the country’s capital and largest city Colombo. The placement offers med-students and qualified professionals the opportunity to spend time interning at a large private hospital as well as on community projects in a public hospital. Between 300-700 in and out patients from surrounding communities visit the hospital on a daily basis for a range of medical treatments. Volunteers will be assigned to a nurse or resident doctor who they will work alongside throughout their stay. Volunteers will find that they are playing an important role in assisting with the medical needs of the people of Sri Lanka and helping to make a difference to their wellbeing, and ultimately their lives.

Goals of this Project:

  • Save lives and make a real difference to the people of Sri Lanka
  • Provide free healthcare to those who need it most
  • Improve the health and long term wellbeing of some of Sri Lanka’s most impoverished people
  • Provide cross-cultural communication between volunteers and locals, share knowledge and exchange ideas

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SATURDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 1 week to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.

Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.

Requirements

This program offers an amazing opportunity for suitable applicants who are 18 years and over to work alongside qualified medical professionals and gain first-hand insight into the Sri Lankan healthcare system. It is open to those with experience and/or education in the field of medicine, as well as med-school and pre-med students. Ideally, volunteers on this project will have at least a basic knowledge of the local language in order to communicate effectively with patients and staff, though this is not a pre-requisite. Naturally, all applicants must also have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
