Do you want an immersive learning experience in Nepal?

Do you have skills that you’re ready to offer to those less fortunate than yourself? 

Do you want to be part of a dynamic team of adventurous healthcare practitioners?    

We’d love to have you join us on this once in a lifetime experience. 

TRIP BASICS:

  • Nov 1-12

    • Days 1 and 12 are travel days, leaving 10 days of learning, service, and soaking in our favorite parts of Nepal.

  • We’ll spend about half of our time in Kathmandu, where we’ll stay at a guest house we love, Tibet Peace Guest House.  The other half of our time will be spent in Karmidanda, our village headquarters.  In Kathmandu you’ll have your own room, and in Karmidanda you’ll have a roommate and live with a local family.

THE SERVICE:

  • Our local partner organization, Share Nepal, is organizing a 2 day “health camp”, where we’ll work with Nepalese practitioners to treat local patients.  In 2018, we saw more than 500 patients collectively over 2 days.

  • We’ll travel as a group, but will serve in 2 teams:

    • Women’s Health team (4 participants, led by Dr. Audra Foster)

    • Chronic Pain team (4 participants, led by Dr. Jill Ghormley)

THE LEARNING:

  • We are offering a 10 credit course, pending CE approval from the Oregon Board of Naturopathic Medicine and the California Board of Chiropractic Examiners. Topics include:

    • Cultural Competency - 2 hrs

      • To inform participants of culturally competent practices in Nepal.

    • Public Health in Nepal - 2 hr

      • To familiarize participants with the healthcare system in which we will serve.

    • Pharmaceutical standard of care in Nepal - 2 hr

      • To educate participants on how Nepalese patients are treated when we’re not there.

    • Plant medicine - 2 hr

      • To introduce participants to the local plant medicine that will be available for dispensing.

    • Clinical aspects of either women’s health or chronic pain - 2 hr

      • To prepare participants to provide clinical care in a setting of short term medical service.
