Medical Officer

Ministry of Health

My work at the Ministry of Health as a Medical officer primed me in good Human Interaction, better resource management, discipline and heavy work load toleration. Initial work at Base Hospital Homagama as an Intern Medical Officer in Pediatrics and Gynecology/Obstetrics helped me to achieve good patient care under a strictly disciplined environment with heavy work load, but with better facilities. Later the work at Rural Hospital, Mahakumbukkadawala, one of most remote Hospitals in the Puttalam District, is challenged with very low resources and heavy work load.
