Posted on October 2nd, 2017

Professor Colvin Gunaratne assumed duties as the Chairman of Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC), a short while ago.

He was appointed by Minister of Health and Indigenous Medicine Dr. Rajitha Senaratne.

His predecessor Professor Carlo Fonseka’s tenure as SLMC Chairman came to an end on June 30. Professor Fonseka had held office since 2012.

Professor Fonseka’s official tenure was supposed to end on December 31, 2016, as the SLMC President’s tenure is generally valid for a period of 5 years.

However, the Ministry of Health took steps to extend his tenure by 6 more months.
