Sri Lanka’s Rajarata University medical students face difficulties due to lack of facilities

Sept 21, Anuradhapura: The Student’s Union of the Medical Faculty of Rajarata University in Anuradhapura says that the first batch of the medical students of the university is facing problems in completing their degree due to the lack of facilities.

The students point out that the special clinical training that was to be commenced in May got postponed due to the delay in opening of the hospital building. The building is to be completed in November now.

Also, the number of nursing cadre attached to the unit is insufficient, the students say. While, the nursing cadre of 150 is needed, only 50 have been attached to the unit by the Ministry of Health, the Students’ Union points out.

The contemporaries of this batch of medical students who entered to Jayawardenapura University in 2006 have already completed their degrees while the batches of the other medical faculties are to pass out in December.
