Prof. Malcolm Fernando

Prof. Malcolm Fernando was one of the first Faculty staff members to make contact with us when we first entered the Colombo Medical Faculty in June 1962. He recruited some of us as investigators in a mental health survey that he was conducting up in Peradeniya. That was a memorable trip by train and we were accommodated in James Peiris Hall. However, even by that time, he had moved to Peradeniya to teach Public Health to our counterparts in the Peradeniya Medical School leaving us in the capable hands of Prof. Abhayaratne and his team. I came to know Prof. Fernando more closely much later when he was Chairman of the PGIM Board of Study in Community Medicine of which I too was a member.

May he Rest in Peace.

  1. Dear Prof.Malcolm Fernando,
    I mean in connection with date 21.12.2012,
    that for the Ability to transform our mind
    is necessary to clarify (cleaning) our heart to imbrace the better cosmic vibrations. The best way is meditation, but no TM, but for instance the whole yogic praxis or mystic (Christian) indoor (internal) silent prayer.
    Dou you mean Mr.Profesor please is that true?
    With best regards Dr.(MD)Tom KILIAN from Czech Rep. Lazne Libverda 196,CZ 463 62 Hejnice.
