Medical electives

Pokhara functions as a busy commercial hub for the region and has a diverse community. Our excellent relationship with several key hospitals and healthcare centres enables us to offer a wide range of clinical opportunities.

Students on placement in Pokhara have access to big, busy wards and the chance to work in key departments or smaller, niche clinics. Whether you are keen to scrub in for theatre or work with leprosy rehabilitation, there are all manner of options available.

Doctors are highly respected in Nepal as they tend to originate from the highest caste, but Nepali people are often very shy when it comes to talking to foreigners.  You will need to be proactive to overcome this, but just a small effort on your part can lead to incredibly rewarding results.  There is plenty to be learnt from the very dedicated teams who face a constant battle to deliver healthcare in one of the world's poorest countries.

We accept anyone on, or who has completed, a medical undergraduate course at the time of their elective.
