Doctors for Nepal works closely with other organisations:
PATAN ACADEMY OF HEALTH SCIENCES
- Nepali medical and nursing colleges that are offering training for community medicine in remote areas – Patan Academy of Health Sciences (PAHS) and Karnali Academy of Health Sciences (KAHS)
- Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) delivering health programmes in rural Nepal that have specialised expertise and a deep understanding of local networks and issues - PHASE Worldwide
is a public not-for-profit tertiary academic institution dedicated to improving Nepal’s rural health by training health workers for rural Nepal. The goal of PAHS is that its graduates will not only provide severely needed medical care in rural Nepal, but will also eventually become leaders in health care policy, dedicated to improving the health of the remote and destitute populations in Nepal. DFN aims to provide at least one full medical scholarship each year to PAHS for a needy student from a rural area.

DFN has also added nursing scholarships with the help of PHASE WORLDWIDE - a charity working in Nepal to empower isolated communities through health, education and livelihood opportunities. Set up in 2005, PHASE works to create opportunities in some of the most remote communities in the world.
