Avni: What an experience!
What. An. Experience.
I spent 8 weeks on my medical elective with TMR in Sri Lanka. All I can say is wow! Ayomi, Charith and the local team go above and beyond to look after you and make you feel at home. You are living on site with them, so you really feel like part of the family. The accommodation felt very safe. I was in an 8 bed dorm, which was very clean and modern. Ayomi put in effort to include us in unique cultural experiences, for example new year celebrations with the villagers, and celebrating Vesak Poya with a dansal refreshment stall where we gave food out to the community. They are also very open to take on suggestions to make your stay even better! The food they cooked was varied and tasty, with ice cream after every meal!! As for the weekend trips, they were good at giving a taster of various sites around Sri Lanka. I did end up going back to a couple of the places via public transport to experience them better. The hospital experience was very eye opening and there were many opportunities to talk to the doctors about cases or differences in their healthcare system. We were often invited to join in the ward round or medical teaching. I particularly enjoyed the medical ward and paediatric ward at the local hospital. We were also given the chance to spend time at the largest hospital in the south of Sri Lanka, and also visited the community Ayurvedic clinic on a weekly basis where we were taught all about herbal medicine! I have honestly had such a wonderful time and I’m going to miss everyone so much!
