This program is designed to give you an unparalleled overview of physical therapy in Nepal. Based in the beautiful city of Chitwan, famous for its nearby National Park, you will spend time in the Physical Therapy department of a large local hospital as well as a center for people with physical disabilities. These are always inspiring placements thanks to the fantastic work that goes on there.
You will stay in a hotel close to the areas where you are working and will participate in evening activities planned by our local staff.
Over the weekend you may have the chance to visit the central markets and local temples, or you could take a trip to the huge and beautiful nature reserve of Chitwan National Park.
You can read more detailed information about the aims of the project in our Nepal Medicine & Healthcare Management Plan.
