Highly trained medical professionals
Sri Lanka has always been a country rich in its healthcare services. From ancient times, more than a few kings have been known for their healing abilities, which have even gone as far as including brain surgery. Today, clinical investigators at the level of specialist consultants have all undergone mandatory training at centres of excellence overseas and possess internationally recognized qualifications. They have good exposure to clinical research (although not so with industry sponsored trials) with GCP training during a 4-6 years period of supervised training. These investigators have excellent publication records and data generated by them are accepted by all major conferences and scientific journals.
