A medical elective at our partner hospital in Kathmandu offers you opportunities in a vast range of different specialist areas. These include neurology, cardiology, nephrology, and more. It’ll be up to you which specific area you’ll want to focus on, but each one will provide you with invaluable experience and insight into Nepal’s healthcare system. Exploring Kathmandu's detailed temples, hiking through lush forests and wildlife, and paragliding through the mountains are all musts once your placement hours are over.
