Medical Institute of Sports seeks permission for new recruits

The Medical Institute of Sports has sought permission from the Sports Minister to recruit more employees to expand their services to other parts of the country too.

This was confirmed by Dr. Lal Ekanayake the Director General of the Sports Medicine Unit.

“We have a few vacancies as the working officials are insufficient to meet the new challenges. We discussed expanding our services throughout the country and the new recruits with the Minister.

“The Ministry of Sports has decided to have national pools island-wide. In this case the Medical Institute must be expanded to serve the athletes and accordingly more doctors and physiotherapists must be appointed. It takes about 45 minutes to administer therapy treatment to an athlete,” said Dr. Ekanayake.

“The Minister wants to strengthen the athletes in every sport. Without help from the medical unit the skills of the athlete cannot be improved. The best way is to be close to the athletes in the villages.”
