Overview
The healthcare medical internship program in Nepal is an ideal platform for overseas students from pre-med, medical, and nursing background. Students joining this program will be placed at local hospitals, both private and government, and medical clinics. Volunteer interns will be put under the guidance of professional doctors and nursing staff where they will get to observe and learn about the medical practices in Nepal. This will provide an immense boost to the medical career of the interns while giving an edge to them from their peers back in college.

Medical volunteers interning in Nepal will be paired with local doctors and nurses where they get a hands on clinical experience, and get to observe the healthcare system in Nepal. The Healthcare Program is ideally suited for Pre-medical and medical students who need to gain valuable experience which will be beneficial for their medical career.
