Welcome to PeMSAA-UK Website
Peradeniya Medical School Alumni Association of the
This website will form the focal point for all its members and provides a link for all other PeMSAAs and those who are interested in the welfare of the Peradeniya Medical School
Our objectives are to encourage, foster and promote close relationship between the School and its alumni and to share the scientific knowledge, clinical skills and educational values. We would also endeavor to support our Alma Mater with any other way we can.
For all PeMSAA trainees coming to UK for post graduate training. Advice, Mentoring, Support and
PeMSAA-UK encourages the undergraduates and post- graduates of our alma mater to develop expertise in research and publications by recognising the best research, audit or quality Improve projects undertaken by them. Two awards are presented every year, one to Undergraduates and the other for the graduartes.
As the President, I intend to continue with the projects already initiated. These are: The PEMSAA academic awards for the undergraduates and the postgraduates; Awarding of scholarships and bursaries; Provision of the Journal of International Medicine and Surgery; Mentoring support to the alumni arriving in the UK.
The membership of an organization is its backbone. I am passionate about increasing our membership. There must be many more alumni in the UK who are not members of PeMSAA. Please encourage them to join to help our alma mater and its students and graduates in furthering their careers.
As the President, I intend to do my best to further develop this fledgling Association and hope that all of you will help and support me and the Committee in the future.
We have provided textbooks for the library of Peradeniya medical School at the request of Prof. Channa Ratnatunga and the librarian. Thanks to the generous donations from the alumni and well-wishers,
we have managed to purchase
most of the books requested.
As the new President of the PeMSAA-UK, I welcome all our members, alumni and well-wishers of the Faculty of Medicine, Peradeniya. I am looking forward to working with the dynamic Committee I have to help the students of the Faculty.
When I entered the Second Medical School, Peradeniya as it was known then, it was a mere collection of temporary buildings. This was in stark contrast to the majestic buildings of the Faculties of Science and Arts. But the calibre of the teachers was outstanding and excellent and innovative teaching was the result. It is very gratifying to see how the Faculty has developed with permanent buildings now and the achievements of the alumni.
