The Department of Clinical Medicine is among the first departments to be established in this faculty. Many internationally renowned doctors have served in this department in various capacities, and we take pride in continuing the hallowed clinical traditions that they have set before us. We strive hard to maintain the high standards of patient care and medical teaching that have existed in our department for a long time.

Our main strength is a team of high-caliber academics dedicated to our goals of achieving excellence in teaching, research, and clinical services. The department strives to bring about advancement in Clinical Medicine through innovation and enterprise. 

We have pioneered renal transplantation in Sri Lanka. Our other strengths have included high caliber research and innovations in medical education.
