Medical Electives at UMN’s Hospitals
Medical Electives at UMN’s Hospitals

Our medical elective program offers a 6-week minimum placement, allowing students to be involved first-hand in a setting very different to their home countries. Places are limited – three students at any one time: two in Tansen and one in Okhaldhunga. This allows for a more comprehensive and productive learning experience.

We arrange* the following:

  • Airport pick-up
  • Booking initial accommodation in Kathmandu
  • Transport to Tansen or Okhaldhunga
  • Accommodation on or very near the hospital compound
  • An orientation tour of the hospital
  • Basic cultural awareness information

*Students are expected to cover all personal costs including travel to and from Tansen/ Okhaldhunga, food, accommodation costs and visa, as well as a USD 250 registration fee to cover the administrative and training costs of the elective programme.
