Locums, research assistant or other jobs for pre-interns ?

Shantha . Posted in Health 5564 2 Comments

My cousin passed out from the medical school recently and she wants to do a job until her internship starts. I think there is a big waiting time for them to start the internship. As she discussed with me, she likes to a locum job or research assistant job. She has tried to get a demonstrator position but has failed to have a chance.
So how do other pre interns find locums in Sri Lanka? and what are the other jobs that pre intern medical officers do?

    Yes it is frustrating to wait for so long after getting the degree. The common possible job options are demonstrator, research assistant, NGO/INGO jobs and Locums.
    To get a locum job, she can talk to a family practitioners/ general practitioners in her area. As most of these doctors can not work 24/7 they employ pre interns under supervision. Check in the Sunday Observer classifieds too. Usually there are 5-8 notices in Sunday Observer for seeking locum doctors.
    Research assistant jobs are very useful as it has some academic value. For that you have to contact university professors.
    After the Tsunami INGOs and NGOs occupied lot of pre intern doctors. Red cross, World Vision, Sewa Lanka are few options.
    Even though it is not in Sri Lankan culture, volunteering is also a good option. it may help if she has any plan to immigrate as in western countries volunteering experience count very much.

Warning. DHI hair transplants are not success. I have had it and only few hair grew. Cost Rs 350,000. Monet wasted. Some few hair grew but after some time all the hair fell out. When I called to complain they hang up and avoid. Even Suraj who done there has now suffered more hair fall. Check his photos on th internet. Dont waste money. Better be bald.

Dr Upendra De Silva at the skin clinic in Bambalapitiya now claims to do hair transplants. This is not successful for sure. Just look even he wears a wig. Why does Upendra wear a wig if he can do good hair transplants. lol. He does not trust his clinics work. Next time if you go his clinic check his wig on head. It is a good wig. He is bald as a cricket ball otherwise. lol.

In my view the best hair transplants in Sri Lanka is in Parakum mawatha, Batharamulla. A few of my friends did it there and good results too. Cost is affordable and team do good reliable work. Got my baldness treated for Rs 50,000 and my hair looks nice now.

Everyone knows people in Sri Lanka are good at throwing mud but poor at praising good work. SO if you want to grow hair visit all the clinics and find the one that best suits you. Good luck.
