Resaon for choosing Nepal:
A few key points below further strengthen the reasons students should visit Nepal for their internships:
1. Communicable diseases, called so because of their transmission from one person to another upon physical contact are common in Nepal, more so than any developed countries. Air and water borne diseases like diarrhea, TB, jaundice, cholera, dysentery, typhoid others alike are abundant in the rural parts of Nepal. The hospitals of Kathmandu shelter numerous patients with such illness from all over Nepal. Students will be able to detect, diagnose and assist in the treatments of patients. Not just that, they will also identify and learn about the reasons behind high mortality rates in developing countries like Nepal.
2. Health care system and the technology used for it in Nepal are extremely traditional and primitive. While all this, working with such treatment methods can construct students’ knowledge about working under tough situations and getting adapt to them. This surprisingly has proven the most effective, over the years.
3. As was aforementioned, the culture, people, lifestyle, society and festivals in Nepal are vivid, unique and interesting. Not only can students be a part of it, but they can also experience the holistic approach to treatments.
4. With the supreme subtlety in its natural delicacy, Nepal resides in the lap of the Himalayas and is a beautiful country. Known especially for the tough daring treks, it is a world famous destination for adventure sports: bungee, paragliding, skydiving, rafting to name a few. Students on their holidays and day offs, get to be a part of these adventurous activities.
