Nursing students in Nepal

Rishab Shankar

Immerse yourself in a dental internship program in Nepal, where your passion for dentistry meets the needs of underserved communities. While regulations limit direct patient care, your impact is far-reaching. Shadow experienced dentists in bustling clinics, absorbing invaluable knowledge. Participate in large-scale check-ups and school campaigns, spreading the power of good oral hygiene.
Under close supervision, gain practical skills – from instrument sterilization to data entry. Master crucial techniques like fluoride application and sealants, empowering you to assist with patient care as you progress. Learn directly from local experts, absorbing their diverse perspectives and honing your clinical acumen. This isn't just an internship; it's a transformative journey. As you seamlessly integrate into the daily rhythm of the clinic, the dentist may entrust you with additional responsibilities. You'll master brushing and flossing techniques, delve into the importance of healthy food habits, and even gain hands-on experience with procedures like fluoride application and sealants. All of these hands-on skills raise the bar for you as a student and instill a level of confidence unlike any other.

Medical Intership In Nepal Gallery


What is involved


Our medical volunteering program is designed to enhance your medical work experience whilst allowing you to take part in responsible travel across a period of 2 weeks to 12 weeks, depending on your availability and personal travel plans. With program availability across the whole year, this medical work experience offers a lot of flexibility to fit around your clinical areas and during your time in Nepal, you will be placed with one of our carefully selected host families and be made to feel like one of the locals.

Your volunteer base will be Kathmandu, the nation’s capital and home to a medical teaching college and a number of hospitals where you will be working and contributing to the ongoing work. Volunteers are required to be over 18 years of age, have good mental and physical health, and be interested in medicine and healthcare. Other than that, we just ask that our medical volunteers are motivated, positive thinkers and possess a desire to help other people. If this sounds like you, our volunteering experience based in the beautiful capital of Kathmandu throughout the year could be the perfect career step for you.

You will be given a choice of medical field or area that you may want to volunteer for and will be working in private hospitals. If you are not sure on what area you would like your placement in we will put you on a general rotation. All the local doctors can speak in English and you will be expected to volunteer from Monday to Friday. Weekends are free for you to explore Nepal further. Our local project coordinators will be available for your support at all times.

Living and working in Kathamandu is an experience of a lifetime. This amazing country is truly epic with 9 UNESCO heritage sites within Kathmandu itself. Beyond there is Chitwan Jungles (also a UNESCO site) and the mighty Everest where you can go trekking upto the base camp.
