Establishing a new Faculty of Medicine at a distant University needs to meet certain basic criteria in view of the scope for medical education such as availability of patients, reasonably developed hospitals for clinical training, a passage between faculty premises and the hospital, recruitment and retention of qualified staff and room availability for sustainable development in future.
The Wayamba University is fortunate in having access to the two most developed hospitals in the North-Western Province viz. the Teaching Hospital, Kuliyapitiya and the General Hospital, Kurunegala. The faculty is established in a 28 acre land in Labuyaya area on the Kuliyapitiya –Kurunegala main road.
