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

Shantha . Posted in Health 3677 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.
