Based in Colombo, Sri Lanka’s largest city, Projects Abroad’s Medicine project is an exciting opportunity for high school students to learn about medical systems in a developing country firsthand.

A volunteer on the Sri Lanka Medicine High School Special project.

During their time on the High School Special, volunteers will be under the supervision of a Projects Abroad Coordinator and will spend time in the different departments of a general hospital. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to visit a hospital specializing in traditional Ayurvedic medicine.

Over the course of the project, volunteers will also attend an interesting workshop on medical practices in Sri Lanka, and participate in outreach activities during a two-day medical camp in a local community and an orphanage.

On the weekend, Projects Abroad will arrange a trip to Kandy, Sri Lanka’s cultural capital, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
