Department of Surgery

The Surgery Curriculum is designed within the framework of the overall objectives of the MBBS Course of the Faculty of Medicine of the Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka and based on the UGC recommended ‘Core Curriculum in Surgery-2020’. The Surgery Curriculum deals with the surgery syllabus (content), teaching & learning methods and the assessments in surgery.

The Department of Surgery with the support of the Extended Faculty Teachers from the Teaching Hospital, Rathnapura, under the guidance of the Faculty Board and the Senate of the University, is primarily responsible for the implementation of the Surgery Curriculum.

The Surgery Curriculum will be reviewed at regular intervals and expected to evolve in response to the changing needs and expectations of the stakeholders which include the Sri Lankan & Global society, Health Service Providers, Professional & Regulatory Bodies, teachers and students. 

The medical students, as adult learners are expected to be familiar with the Surgery Curriculum and engage in all teaching/learning activities with a clear understanding of the purpose and provide constructive feedback to the Department of Surgery when appropriate
