All applications for clinical traineeships or medical assignments in Nepal are handled directly by Nepalmed e.V. and not by the respective local hospital.
Interested students please contact Ms. Marx via email at the following email address: work.nepal(at)

Please consider the following: Please note that Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world. Infrastructure such as houses and roads are often in a miserable condition. Fatal traffic accidents are far more frequent than in our country. Drinking water, electricity or artificial light are not a matter of course. Please do not arrive at our partner hospitals at sunset. Otherwise, the hospital staff waiting for you will not be able to reach their home because of the darkness. Hygiene practices are not comparable with your accustomed standards. You have to expect cockroaches, spiders and rats in the hospital. In some cases, accommodations are not inhabited for a longer period of time, so that you sometimes have to resort to brooms or mops first. Nepalese culture is very different from ours. Misunderstandings can easily occur, e.g. nodding the head means NO, wiggling the head sideways means YES.

More infomation about Interships in Nepal.

At the bottom of this page you will find testimonials from former students. In addition, since June 2022 there has been a Slack forum for new, current and former medical trainees sent to Nepal through Nepalmed. There you can exchange information with each other and ask informal questions. It is not supervised by Nepalmed, but is run independently by the students. If you would like to participate, simply send an email to socialmedia(at) .
