As a developing, low-resource country, a Radiology placement in Anuradhapura will mean working with dated diagnostic equipment, giving you the chance to go back to basics. Even in the face of out-dated resources, local staff are still able to provide a high standard of care to all patients. You’ll have the opportunity to diagnose unusual conditions most likely unfamiliar to you. Anuradhapura is also a fascinating cultural and historical hub – the city holds over fifty Buddhist temples, shrines, and stupas. Hot air balloon rides over jungle canopies and venturing into rural villages can easily be part of your experience too. Read what our students think below!
