The Manipal College of Medical Sciences (MCOMS) statement is; ‘International Bonding for Quality Medical Education, Affordable Healthcare & Holistic Human Development.’ (MCOMS is a private teaching hospital providing tertiary level care to the western region of Nepal. The hospital is well-funded by local standards, which covers a wide range of specialties that are not widely available within the government healthcare system.
The hospital caters for a wide range of economic groups and therefore, although it has all the facilities of a first rate private hospital, students undertaking placements here will undoubtedly see a wide range of cases and treatments – especially rare and critical conditions.
Doctors from Manipal Hospital periodically conduct outreach programmes in Primary Healthcare Clinics around Pokhara. There is no strict schedule, but students with relevant skills are often welcome to travel with the team and participate. Students should talk to the Work the World Programme Manager on arrival if interested in participating on such a programme. Students are responsible for any additional costs such as travel and food while participating in community work.
Being a teaching hospital, students will be working alongside local Nepalese students in groups of up to 20, particularly during ward rounds, with a large emphasis on group learning. Local students are nearly always happy to assist translating from the predominantly Nepalese speaking patients, which can be beneficial for English speaking students.
