Kirsty and Megan medical internship
Kirsty and Megan medical internship in Nepal is a great pleasure and we welcome two passionate and charming volunteers from England to our medical care and public health internship program in Nepal. Kirsty Hancock and Megan Dalrymple-Hay, both talented individuals pursuing their medical degrees at the University of Southampton, have joined us to gain insight into healthcare services provided in different parts of the world.
Kirsty is in the final year of her five-year bachelor’s degree in medicine and is set to start working as a junior doctor for the National Health Service later this summer. In pursuit of gaining a deeper understanding of healthcare practices in different cultures, Kirsty has decided to volunteer in Nepal as part of her medical internship. She is excited about exploring the rich culture and natural beauty of Nepal, as she enjoys travelling, hiking, swimming, and spending time with her loved ones.
On the other hand, Megan is completing her bachelor’s degree in medicine this summer and plans to begin working for the National Health Service as a junior doctor in August. Currently in Nepal as part of her medical elective, Megan is eager to learn more about the healthcare system in this unique country. Her hobbies include travelling, skiing, hiking, and spending quality time with her family and friends.
We are honoured to have these two brilliant and dedicated individuals in our program and are confident that their skills and knowledge will make a valuable contribution to the healthcare community in Nepal. We wish them all the best in their future endeavours, as they take their passion for medicine and culture to new heights.
