Our partner institution in Kathmandu offers experiences in many different specialist areas including neurology, cardiology, nephrology, and more. This range of choices means you'll be able to either focus on a specific area of interest or work across a range of areas to gain invaluable experience during your medical elective. During your time off, make sure you explore Kathmandu's ornate temples, hike through the natural beauty surrounding the city, or paraglide through the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas.
