A medical volunteer experience in Sri Lanka is an eye-opening experience, providing you with a great deal of international work-experience in a variety of departments. We have medical volunteer and internships based in The Teaching Hospital Karapitiya (THK). THK is the largest Tertiary care center in the Southern Province, and it was established in 1982.

THK is the main training facility for the Faculty of Medicine. It consists of 1560 beds, 54 wards, and several other units. Volunteers normally work in several departments, such as general medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, ENT, and pediatrics, and you can also arrange to spend a few days in specialist areas like neurology, rheumatology, the mortuary and clinics. There’s plenty of choice, and if you let us know which areas are of most interest to you we will do our best to arrange placements which are perfect for you.
