Who are we looking for?
We are looking for curious and motivated undergraduates, medical students, graduate students, and post-grads who hold an interest in international health, education, and/or doing service work abroad. Background knowledge or prior experience is not required - in the past, we've been joined by students in medicine, life sciences, engineering, the humanities, and everywhere in between.
What is expected from volunteers?
During the school year, Nepal Medical Project participants are expected to attend a weekly meeting on Monday evenings. These meetings are used to learn and practice relevant medical skills, design community health worker curriculum, and explore global medicine with a focus on the Sherpa community that is being served.
Participants will also have the option to partake in the project's annual trip* consisting of a week-long trek to Chyangba village, followed by multiple weeks during which we run clinic and train community health workers. The trip is expected to last from mid-June until the end of July.
*If you are interested in joining the program trip to Nepal, while financial aid may be available through grants to offset the cost of the trip, it will ultimately be your responsibility to ensure that you are able to cover the cost of going abroad as part of this program (be it through individually-applied grants, fundraising, or out-of-pocket).
Formal information sessions have passed, but we can be contacted to schedule makeup sessions if time permits. If you are interested in this program but missed the session, it's not too late to join. Please contact:
