About Us

Ceylonese Connection was found back in 2013 with the idea of providing affordable and tailor-made healthcare internships for international healthcare students in mind. It is organized to make internship programs tailored for each student or a group of students as needed. We believe in the concept of freedom of choice when it comes to where the students want to live, eat or how they want to spend the days of their program.

Speaking of freedom of choice it is up to the students to choose what they require. However through experience we know what works with majority of students and we recommend the same. If any student feels that something needs to be changed, we at Ceylonese Connection have made the option to reach us out and tailor a placement program that works for them.

Apart from invaluable experience which students will gain in Sri Lankan healthcare institutions your view on life as you know it will change forever. We promise you that the new places, cultures, cuisine and people you encounter will reward you with a whole new perspective in to life. Join with us and help to change a life; be it yours or someone else.
