Local Hospital Program in Nepal

Program Category:

Medical and Healthcare

Good medical care is a serious problem in rural and urban areas of Nepal. A lot of people have moved to Kathmandu after the civil war to seek better opportunities. This has left much of the city’s public health infrastructure desperately overused. For the poor living in Kathmandu seeing a doctor is simply not an affordable option. Meanwhile in rural areas medical facilities are also in short supply. Main reasons are a poor transportation network and a lack of funding.

This program is designed for

Pre-Med Students / Nursing Students / Licensed Professionals

Volunteer Responsibilities

For pre-medic placements you must have a keen interest or be planning to study medicine in some capacity. With medical student placements you must be currently studying at or have graduated from medical school. For our professional placements you must be practicing in the medical profession. On applying for these placements please let us know your level of experience and field of expertise. We will do our best to find you a suitable placement.
