Nepal: Pokhara

Program Summary

Undertaking a medical placement in a Work the World partner hospital in Nepal means interns will have access to both bustling wards and smaller, more niche departments. Interns should be prepared to engage with health complaints they might not be familiar with, such as worm infestations, snake bites, rheumatic fever, typhoid, and leprosy. Interns may also have the opportunity to practice medicine in a small rural mountain village – a limited resource environment where their knowledge of their practice will inevitably grow. Here, interns will learn how local people manage and use their resources.

Outside of their working hours, interns will be free to enjoy the stunning views of the snow-capped Himalayan peaks, try white water rafting, bungee jumping, or simply unwind with some hilltop yoga.

NOTE: To be eligible for a Work the World medical internship, you need to be in medical school, or have equivalent clinical experience (MD or equivalent). We can also not accept premeds.
