During the internship, you will gain valuable experience and learn by observing the procedures of the in-house doctors. The internship can take place in either government, private or community hospitals around Kathmandu. This program is aimed for medicine students or those with a medical background.

For those practising or aspiring to practice medicine, the hospital internship is an amazing experience which will help you appreciate the challenges faced in developing countries around medical care.   As a Medical intern, you’ll shadow registered doctors and nurses and may take part in medical procedures dependant on skill levels.  The majority of work will be observation based only within government, private, or community hospitals in Kathmandu and in around Kathmandu Valley.

There will not be any hands-on work unless you are very experienced. If not, then most of your learning will be through observation.  Many options are available for volunteers depending on your skill level.  You’ll spend the first couple days observing and being assessed for your experience level which will be discussed and agreed to with the head doctors or nurses in order to optimize your contribution to the hospital.  Experienced participants can be delegated daily roles as nurses and doctors.  See first hand treatments you may not have access to seeing in your home environment.

You will need prior knowledge & experience in the medical profession to apply.  

For most visitors to Nepal, Kathmandu Valley is the arrival point and the primary focus of the visit. This small, mountain-sheltered valley is the historical centre of Nepal, a place where kingdoms rose and fell, where palaces and temples were built and rebuilt, and where Nepali art and culture was developed and refined. Rivers and streams interlace with the landscape, the brick-red villages cling to ridges to preserve precious land and even from the bustling centres of each of the cities, it is possible to catch a glimpse of the snow-capped peaks of the majestic Himalayas against the intense blue skies.

Tagesablauf

Example day to day (breakfast lunch, dinner included daily)

  • Monday-Friday – The schedule is highly flexible and depends on local needs and your skills. You can expect to accompany the doctor on his rounds every morning and be prepared to assist in various tasks based on your own level of experience.  The Hospital Director will schedule your program when a resume and qualification certificates have been received.
  • Weekends – are always free.  Relax at the volunteer center or expand your sightseeing and visit the many more sites in Kathmandu. 

Freizeitaktivitäten

Kathmandu is the gateway to the Himalayas and as such mountain sightseeing, hiking, white water rafting are popular options as well as various cultural sights with Buddhist monasteries, temples and historical villages.   Our local team will help you organize activities alongside your newfound volunteer friends and family.

Abholung vom Flughafen Tribhuvan International Airport

Programs begin every Monday, and volunteers are required to arrive the day prior, for orientation before the project. Your accommodation on the Sunday is included in the program fees.

A free airport pickup is included when arriving to Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM). You must arrive between the hours 06:00 to 24:00 on Sunday.

If arriving outside the pickup times on Sunday, you can book a private transfer for US$50.

If arriving during the week, or on Saturday, we charge US$50 for any extra night’s accommodation before your program, and another US$50 fee for a private transfer.

Alternatively, if arriving early you could wait at the arrival’s terminal for the pickup time, book accommodation at the airport and meet us during the pickup times or make your own way to the project (we will advise on how to do this).

From the airport to Kathmandu accommodation, it takes 45 minutes by taxi.

For Pokhara placements you will be picked up at KTM airport and spend the first night (Sunday) at the accommodation in Kathmandu. On Monday you will have an orientation day in Kathmandu (no orientation is offered in Pokhara). On Tuesday, you will be transferred to Pokhara, before starting your project on the Wednesday. If your first project is in Pokhara then the transfer is included. If first volunteering in Kathmandu, and then changing to a project in Pokhara, you will need to pay extra for the transfer. 

For Buddhist monastery placements please note that transfers between Kathmandu and monasteries are not included in the program fee. You will be picked up at KTM airport and spend the first night (Sunday) at the accommodation in Kathmandu. On Monday you will have an orientation day in Kathmandu. On Tuesday, you will transfer to the monastery. We highly recommend doing the cultural orientation week add-on project for monastery projects, so you have a full understanding of the local culture.
