Medical Elective in Nepal

Completing a medical elective abroad will be an amazing experience for students, whether you spend 4 weeks or as much as a year. There are a variety of medical electives in Nepal at hospitals and clinics in Bardibas and the surrounding areas.


You can practice in Bardibas in different public or private hospitals, clinics and health care centers. We will provide accommodations at local inns, guest houses or home stays to complete your experience and allow you a single point of contact for organizing your elective. There are programs from as little as 4 weeks or up to a full year. Also, a number of charities throughout Nepal bring medical care to remote villages and our network can connect you with these much needed campaigns. Because we have so much experience assisting in connecting volunteer students with such opportunities, as well as, tourist activities we can easily make reservations for you with any custom adventures in the Himalayas.


Nepal is an optimal place for medical internship program for students, as well as, medical professionals. A WHO study in 2010 shows that, on average, only 2.1 physicians and 4.5 nurses or mid wives are available per 10,000 people in Nepal. Nepal is a tropical country with a high prevalence of disease. As warmer worldwide temperatures push these diseases further into the highlands the need for proper medical care will only increase.
