It had taken a major role in enhancing knowledge skills and attitudes of the Medical profession. The KSM had reached out to the society in uplifting the same in all strata of healthcare workers as well as the public.

We shall be continuing the routine academic programmes, such as the very popular Wednesday CME program. Along with the council I hope to promote multidisciplinary approach in healthcare through the CME program. In this respect, it would make an arena for all grades of medical officers as speakers to share their experiences and disseminating their knowledge.

“Safe City – Better life“

The KSM theme for year 2014/2015 is "Safe City – Better life"
"සුරැකුණු නුවරක - පැහැබර හෙටක් "

2500 people die and 15000 get badly injured each year on our roads. Our roads are like a battlefield and we and our children and loved ones have to risk this battlefield everyday.

This is an ambitious, far reaching plan to make Kandy a safer city by establishing pedestrian and vehicular discipline. For once we try not to bitterly criticize the City, Drivers and the Police for traffic chaos and try to do something about it ourselves as a big group. We hope to harness all resources we can muster to reach the most vulnerable groups in the general public. This should lead to a attitude change among the public to give priority to safety while on the road. This programme requires commitment and support from all of you and soon we will let you know how you can help us.
