Nepal - Quick Facts
Program: Medical Internship
I absolutely believe this trip was an eye-opener. I learnt a lot in Kanti hospital and the doctors were very friendly and answered all my questions. Nepal is a beautiful place where you can see breath-taking things and gain lots of experience and the people there are amazingly friendly and helpful. The coordinators were really friendly and helpful. They were always in contact throughout the whole stay. The overall living experience was excellent. It was very comfortable and homely stay with all the facilities that I could have asked for. The experience was very worthwhile
