2012 has been a very special year for Doctors for Nepal, as we now have our very first Doctor for Nepal. Lalit was overjoyed in September to learn that he had passed his final exams at Nepalgunj School of Medicine, and is now well into his equivalent of a ‘house job’ at Nepalgunj Hospital.
At Patan Academy of Health Science (PAHS), our students Nahakul and Meena are making good progress in their second year. They are enjoying the early introduction to work in rural communities and send us frequent updates which you can now view on our recently updated website. Doctors for Nepal continues to support Meena and Nahakul with essential study resources such as laptops and textbooks, and we always welcome donations of second hand, good condition medical textbooks.
We are in the process of selecting two students to commence study in 2013. This will require in excess of £13,000 which means we have plenty of funds to raise to ensure we get them started with their training.
