Your Campus Connection
This medical internship program is open for medical doctors, nurses and medical students. Volunteers will help provide medical services in health posts, health centers and mobile health and medical clinics. If you are a medical professional or pursuing career in the field, this is an opportunity for you to put your experience and theoretical knowledge into practice.
The project is organized in different communities in and around the Kathmandu Valley, Pokhara, Tanahun, Lamjung, Chitwan, Makwanpur and Nawalparasi district. You can explore the real rural Nepal by staying in secluded villages where people live in very traditional ways. Or you can opt for a more urban and modern Nepal experience in the bustling and fast-growing cities like Kathmandu and Pokhara.

Relevant education and experience are appreciated. Strong motivation and interest in Nepalese culture are expected.
Volunteers attend a 3-day orientation seminar at a training center in Kathmandu before the start of the project. The seminar aims to provide basic knowledge about the Nepalese culture, dress code, food, and detailed information about the project, Nepali language, etc. The orientation seminar starts on the first Monday of the month. During the orientation, accommodation is provided in a dormitory in Kathmandu.
Participation in an international project can valuable – and often essential – to your studies or professional realization. Many of our volunteers are professionals in training or researchers looking to build their skill set. Current and future social workers, teachers, tutors, team leaders can benefit from one of our many projects in orphanages, social centers, and other people-oriented settings. Nurses and doctors frequently participate in our projects in medical centers, hospitals, or special needs facilities. Students take advantage of our environmental sustainability, biology, restoration, or archeology projects. The list is hardly exhaustive. A well-picked volunteer experience can inspire you, motivate your professional aspirations, give you hands-on experience, and build you up in ways impossible at a lecture or in the office.
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
