Healthcare Internships in Nepal

This program is geared toward medical students, nurses, and nursing students. Volunteers work at hospitals and health clinics in Kathmandu performing tasks like taking vital signs, dressing wounds, administering shots, drawing blood, holding babies while they are being treated, helping to screen and organize patients, assisting staff with getting medicines/supplies, and generally helping out in whatever capacity they might need you.
