The Situation in Nepal

There is a real shortage of skilled therapists in Nepal. If you’re currently training in physiotherapy or occupational therapy (with at least one year of experience), recently qualified or mid-career, your help in Nepal can provide valuable treatment to babies, children, and adults with a wide range of physical problems. The experience of completing a physiotherapy internship in Nepal will in return give you a greater understanding of how professionals in the field operations in developing countries, and an opportunity to utilize your skills for the benefit of others.

Where can I do my Internship?

1. Education and Rehabilitation Center for Children

Just outside of Kathmandu there is a centre where children with different types of disabilities get help with their education and rehabilitation. Here there are several other physical therapists that can work with you and guide you. There is a schedule that allows each child to spend quality time in the physical therapy room as often as possible. Each child has different needs: some are learning to walk, some suffer from muscular problems, while other children need to have their joints massaged regularly to maintain their physical health. Extra assistance from interns with these tasks will allow more children to use the room and get treatment on a regular basis.

2. Hospital

We can match you with an internship in a hospital where you can observe and work with the physical therapists

3. Home for Disabled Adults and Children

In this amazing and loving home, there are 70 patients and only one physical therapist. Help is needed and you will work alongside the physical therapist, learning and helping at the same time.

Do I need any specific skills or qualifications for this placement?

Everyone doing a Physical Therapy project in Nepal must have completed at least one year of related studies or training by the time they join the project. It is important for volunteers to have a positive attitude and a real willingness to help children with a wide range of physical and mental disabilities if they are to work here.

Internship Guidance

As an intern, you will get guidance from your local project coordinator and also from the overall Internship Coordinator of Volunteer Society Nepal. She has an M.Sc in International Development and a minor in Education Management. We also provide you with all the details needed for your college or university and complete your evaluation forms together.
