SAITM - Faculty of Medicine | Message from the President
Nizhny Novgorod State Medical Academy Russian Federation,
Sri Lanka Campus, Malabe.
(UGC APPROVED DEGREE AWARDING INSTITUTE)
As the President, I am proud
to announce that SAITM Medical Faculty has been
granted degree awarding status by the University
Grants Commission. SAITM Medical Faculty is the
only private sector owned Medical Faculty in Sri
Lanka. I am very happy that my vision for Sri
Lankan students who were not admitted to state
universities has an opportunity of obtaining a
foreign or local Medical degree in Sri Lanka is
The faculty has very talented students who would
have missed their vocation had the Campus in Malabe
not been established.
After a period of close supervision and monitoring
of the facilities available and assessments of
students and the academics that we have, the Ministry
of Public Health and Social Development Russian
Federation has approved our Campus as Nizhny Novgorod
State Medical Academy Russian Federation – Sri
Lanka Campus. The degree of MD Nizhny Novgorod
State Medical Academy will be conferred on successful
students of first four batches. Opportunity to
obtain MBBS (SAITM) Sri Lanka or degree MD – Nizhny
Novgorod State Medical Academy is open for students
who will be registered 5th batch onwards.
The Faculty has visiting professors from Peradeniya,
Colombo and Kelaniya Universities. Permanent staff
consists of qualified professionals from respective
subject areas who have been selected carefully
according to UGC guidelines.
The laboratories are fully equipped and the Mortuary
has enough cadavers for student dissections. We
obtain dead bodies from donors.
The Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Pathology
laboratories are fully equipped and the building
of the anatomy museum to duplicate the Nizhny
museum has commenced collecting specimens. Histology
laboratories cater to only 10 students in a class
and 4 laboratories are functioning.
SAITM has almost completed construction of the
High Tech Modern Teaching hospital with 1002 beds
at No. 406 B, Church Road, Welivita, Malabe within
close proximity to the Campus. The OPD has commenced
functioning successfully from 27th September 2012.
The wards and the other facilities will be completed
by December 2012. When completed this will be
Sri Lanka’s largest Private hospital with modern
high tech facilities. Even though this will be
a private hospital, I have made provisions to
treat people who are earning low income with concessionary
University Grants Commission (U.G.C) commenced
monitoring of Nizhny Novgorod State Medical Academy
Russian Federation – Sri Lanka Campus on the 19th
of November 2010. Even though we have been granted
degree awarding status monitoring and compliance
is a continuous process which keeps the facilities
under control and check on academic staff, their
qualifications and in short – overall supervision
of our Medical Faculty.
Our students who follow the degree MD – NNSMA
Russian Federation will have to sit the Act 16
examination once they graduate. When they pass
the Act 16 examination they are eligible to do
their internship and practice in Sri Lanka or
any part of the world.
