Work as a volunteer as part of the medical internship at the children's clinic in Kathmandu. In your work as a medical intern, you will learn about the concerns and needs of parents as well as specific clinical pictures. The medical staff at the pediatric clinic will familiarize you with the treatment methods. You can also pass on healing methods from your home country.
The medical internship at the children's clinic in Kathmandu is a great way to get to know the Nepalese health system. In Kathmandu you will immerse yourself in the life and culture of the Nepalese and you will also see some natural beauties of the Himalayas.
The doctors and nurses at the hospital will select your tasks based on your professional background and experience. If you already have appropriate medical training and formal experience, you can even do some non-intrusive treatments under the supervision of pediatricians.
As a prospective nurse or medical student, you can get to know different areas of treatment in the clinic during your medical internship.
In this way, you can be involved in various pediatric surgical interventions as an observer or assistant based on your experience and knowledge. In addition, you will be familiarized with care routines in oncology, newborn and child intensive care units. Another important area is the vaccination of newborns, such as vaccinations against polio, measles, mumps and rubella.
In the children's clinic, you will also come into contact with other medical interns or prospective nurses, so that you can exchange your experiences.
When you visit Nepal, you will also understand better how precarious personal hygiene training is.
Infectious diseases such as dengue, peeling typhoid and tuberculosis, which are very rare in industrialized countries, are still a serious threat to public health in Nepal.
Although the children's hospital in Kathmandu is the best in Nepal, medication and resources are often scarce there too. And, of course, medical knowledge is often not up to the standard of a modern western hospital.
As a medical intern in Nepal, you have the opportunity to improve and exchange your medical skills. You will also discover the key health problems that developing countries face today. You will learn a lot and do really valuable work. So, medical volunteers will cause a positive impact on the local community and the development of the Nepalese health system.

You can also enjoy the cultural life in the historic city of Kathmandu during your medical internship. Your host family will familiarize you with the cultural peculiarities. Finally, you will be immersed in the fascinating culture of Nepal.
You will also enjoy the tasty and wonderful food as the staff serve you a traditional Nepalese lunch daily while you work.
