SAITM offers a world class Medical Degree with a Sri Lankan touch

Nizhny Novgorod State Medical Academy Sri Lanka Campus now has two batches of students of over 90. The second intake has started their first semester whilst the very first batch is about to complete their first academic year.

The qualified and friendly academic staff as well as the senior students have ensured that the new batch feels at home straight away. The individualized close attention that students receive has been a special feature of the Nizhny Novgorod, Sri Lankan Campus.

The Faculty follows the teaching methods of the Russian Medical Academy in English medium, but with a distinct Sri Lankan flavour. Therefore, it ensures that students understand the local medical system and the diseases common here. This will remove the many difficulties that foreign educated Sri Lankan medical students have when they return to Sri Lanka.

The ACT 16 exam becomes a major hurdle for those whose clinical training/experience is abroad. This faculty will make sure that it does not happen, as the professors, senior lecturers, and other academic staff are locally qualified and highly experienced, in both local and foreign universities.

In addition to the permanent staff, there are visiting lecturers from local universities as well as from Russia to teach students.

The medical school has Departments for Anatomy - the study of the human body, with its subsidiary sections of Histology and Embryology. Physiology, Philosophy of Medicine, Medical Informatics are the other areas currently being taught.

The teaching of Latin and Medical Terminology is considered extremely useful as many medical terms are in Latin. Russian is also taught with modern methods of language teaching. The basic sciences, General and Bioorganic Chemistry, Medical and Biophysics, Biology and Ecology, which students have already learnt in the schools, is continued with emphasis on their use in medicine.

The departments have well equipped laboratories and lecture rooms, and use models, human body dissections and multimedia. Teaching methodology includes lectures, small group discussions of 10 students and continuous assessments.

Simulators for clinical teaching will also be initiated to better prepare students before they start their clinical work with real patients. The use of Information and Communication Technology is considered an important adjunct.

The Faculty, set in beautiful surroundings in view of it being a Green Campus, gives the student a conducive environment to develop into a fully qualified doctor and a fully developed human being, with a personality that patients will appreciate and love.

The faculty is well aware of the future needs of the community, the health needs of our country and the world at large, and will guide students towards a career that will satisfy them, as well as benefiting the population they will serve.

SAITM faculty comprises professors and senior lecturers with extensive experience in both state and foreign universities.
