I was successful in MD Radiology part 2 examination, which is the examination required to become a consultant in our country is conducted by the University of Colombo with overseas examiners from Australian College of Radiologists and Royal college of Radiologists, UK. Part of our requirement prior to board certification as a specialist in Sri Lanka is that one needs to have post MD experience for a minimum period of one year in an overseas hospital. The reason behind this is to enable one to gain knowledge, experience and skills, which are lacking in Sri Lanka. On return a Consultant post awaits me. The syllabus for MD training and examinations are similar to that of FRCR, UK and I am allowed to sit for FRCR part 1 & 2. I would like to inquire whether it would be possible for me to work in your unit according to your system of providing attachments. If I am offered a non-paid post, the Ministry of Health, Sri Lanka will bear up my living expenses. I have herewith attached my curricula vita for your perusal. If you are in a position to offer me a placement, the Director, Post Graduate Institute of Medicine, University of Colombo, Sri Lanka, will communicate with you officially on behalf of me. I look forward to hearing from you at the earliest. Thank you Yours sincerely M.sriluxayini
