Neurosurgery in Nepal

International

I was lucky enough to complete a Medical Internship with Partnership for Sustainable Development-Nepal as my third co-op work term. As part of the work term I was given the opportunity to follow a Neurosurgeon for two weeks at Model Hospital, Kathmandu, Nepal. I witnessed six surgeries, with four of them being spinal fusions, a compound skull fracture, and the removal of a lipoma. I also observed inpatient rounds, and saw the wide scope of patients that a Nepali Neurosurgeon sees. This experience also allowed me to have a firsthand view of how medicine is practiced in Nepal, and the problems faced by health care systems in developing countries.
