The Faculty of Medicine and Allied Sciences (FMAS), Rajarata University of Sri Lanka (RUSL) is the fifth and the second youngest faculty of RUSL which was established in July 2006, under section 21 of the University Act No. 16 of 1978. The former Youth Ranger Training Center at Saliyapura was identified as the site of the new faculty. The location is 7 km from the Anuradhapura General Hospital and 17 km from the main campus at Mihinthale. The first batch of 171 medical undergraduates from 22 districts in the island were recruited to the faculty on 11 th September 2006. Since then twelve batches have been admitted to the faculty. Seven batches of students have graduated to date. The faculty comprises seventeen academic departments and units. Anuradhapura Teaching Hospital (THA), which is the third largest hospital in the country, serves as the main teaching hospital of the faculty. THA houses the University Professorial Units in the principal clinical disciplines equipped with modern diagnostic and management facilities. Staff of all Clinical Departments provide services as honorary consultants at THA. Community practice area consists of a socio-economically diverse population that enables comprehensive primary and preventive care training. Community care services that are provided by FMAS include, services for mentally disabled children, health promotional activities, outreach clinics, maternal and infant care services, especially related to averting child malnutrition and improving maternal morbidity surveillance as well as providing guidance on epidemiological studies for healthcare professionals. These services are partly integrated to the community based teaching program to ensure that students get a hands on experience in public health. The faculty continually strives to uplift the standards of the institution, by paving the way for students to reach their full potential. The faculty has strengthened its human resources and other infrastructure facilities during the past decade. The medical curriculum underwent two major revisions in 2014 and 2016, to prepare the graduates for future challenges. Throughout the short history of the faculty our undergraduates have secured high ranks in the common merit order and excelled in various postgraduate courses.
