Physiotherapy Internship in Nepal program for those practising or aspiring to practice physiotherapy/ medicine, this internship is an incredible opportunity, which will help you appreciate the challenges faced in developing countries around medical care. As a physiotherapy intern, you will shadow registered physiotherapists and may take part in physio sessions for adults and children, depending on prior experience and skills. The majority of work will be observation-based (unless already qualified), which allows a great opportunity to gain valuable firsthand knowledge, giving your resume that extra advantage!
In Nepal we can offer physiotherapy internship in Nepal placements to suit volunteers of all levels of experience, so whether you are an aspiring physiotherapist or a qualified professional we will be happy to provide you with placement and we will tailor your role based on your background.
Just outside of Kathmandu there is a centre where children with different types of disabilities get help with their education and rehabilitation. Here there are several other physical physiotherapies that can work with you and guide you. There is a schedule that allows each child to spend quality time in the physical therapy/physiotherapy room as often as possible. Each child has different needs: some are learning to walk, some suffer from muscular problems, while other children need to have their joints massaged regularly to maintain their physical health. Extra assistance from interns with these tasks will allow more children to use the room and get treatment on a regular basis.
We can match you with an internship in a hospital where you can observe and work with the physiotherapy therapists
In this amazing and loving home, there are 70 patients and only one physical therapist. Help is needed and you will work alongside the physiotherapy/physical therapist, learning and helping at the same time.
