Change a life in 5 minutes – Short Film Competition for Future Clinicians
විනාඩි 5 න් ජීවිතයක් වෙනස් කරමු!

Students are selected to study medicine after a highly competitive examination. The faculty of Medicine of the University of Kelaniya is blessed with multi-talented young Sri Lankan men and women seeking a career in medicine. Only the most academically brilliant and emotionally resilient students can easily withstand this gruelling course of five years duration. Understandably, undergraduate medical education could be cognitively and physically demanding to young university students and induce emotional stress. However, it is seen frequently that university students lack essentials emotional awareness skills, coping skills, and problem-solving techniques that would help in optimal stress management. Apart from the theoretical and clinical learning in their core subjects, it is important to learn emotional regulation and psychological stress management to be effective learners and empathetic future doctors and clinicians. Otherwise, their maladaptive ways of coping will persist into their work-life in their medical career.
The project aimed to improve emotional awareness, psychological mindedness, and coping skills among medical students, recognise and celebrate the creativity of medical undergraduates in artistic domains, and learn to design and produce effective mental health promotion material.
