Medical Elective

CLINICAL/HEALTH INTERNSHIP/ELECTIVE PROGRAM IN NEPAL
Length 
2 weeks to Maximum of 5 months.

Our Medical Volunteer Program places doctors, nurses, and medical school students in hospitals and clinics in Nepal. You work in either a urban or rural setting, providing primary care to locals in your specialty.

We have standing requests from local facilities for Internists, Urologists, Surgeons, Oncologists, Opthamologists, Nurses, Dentists, and EMT’s. You will play a critical role in the villages and towns where you’ll serve.

Medical school students’ activities will include things like following doctors on their rounds, exploring different treatments for simple ailments, providing physical therapy, and participating in vaccination programs.

Depending on the timing of your visit, you will have the opportunity to visit large general hospitals, maternity clinics, children’s hospitals, HIV/AIDS wards, and alternative-medicine clinics. Your visits will be given some context by local doctors and nurses who will discuss issues such as typical illnesses/treatments and the general state of health care in the country.
