Our partner hospital in Kathmandu sees an average of one hundred babies delivered per day, so you can be sure you’ll be kept busy all placement long. The hospital also offers experience in the labour wards, postnatal wards, post-op wards, and more.

There are also opportunities to go white water rafting, bungee jumping, and even paragliding! Read what our students think below.
