The Pre-Medical Internship in Nepal program provides students with three main opportunities: to help those less fortunate, to Learn first-hand knowledge about the medical field, and to discover the amazing diversity of Nepal.
If you are in college, studying biology, chemistry or any of the sciences and are considering a career in medicine this is the ideal program for you. You’ll never have a better opportunity to see what life as a healthcare professional will be like and get up-close and personal with the workings of a hospital. There is no better way to boost your application to medical school than participation in this program.
You will be able to receive an incredible opportunity to observe all facets of medicine in a Kathmandu Hospital with English-speaking doctors. You will get experience in x-ray, laboratory, dental, eye-care, emergency, pre and post-operative, OB/GYN and the surgical theatre. Make daily rounds with doctors who will engage you in the diagnostic process and treatments. This will look great on your medical school application.
In addition to rotating through departments of the hospital, it includes the emergency, OGGYN. In radiology, laboratory, in-patient, pharmacy and out-patient departments, you can actually scrub in and observe surgery with doctors who are willing to explain to you, step-by-step, what they are doing and why.
There is no way to impart the long-term impact of participation in this program. It will be truly life-changing. It’s the best way we know of to boost that medical school application as well. Few students will be able to list participation in such a comprehensive program in a developing country.
