Is this Physiotherapy High School Special in Nepal right for me?

If you’re a teenager interested in getting a closer look at physiotherapy, this High School Special is a great option for you. It’s also a good fit if you’re eager to explore physiotherapy as a potential career. It will add relevant work experience to your CV, and give you interesting points to talk about in university applications and interviews. 


You don’t need previous experience to join. Your role is strictly observational, and staff will take the time to explain what they’re doing and why. In addition, you can reach out to our staff at any time.


Our Physiotherapy internship for teeneagers in Nepal takes place on fixed dates for two weeks in the summer. It follows a set itinerary, with Projects Abroad staff on hand to provide guidance and constant supervision. When you’re not working, you’ll be having fun with the rest of your group on activities and trips we’ve organised.

What will I do on a Physiotherapy internship in Nepal for teenagers?

During your time as a Physiotherapy intern in Nepal, you will have many opportunities to learn and explore. These are some of the things you’ll do:


  • Observe physiotherapists at your placement as they work with patients
  • Build your practical healthcare knowledge
  • Explore a new country and make new friendships during socials and weekend travel

Your work will mainly focus on the following:


Observe physiotherapists at your placement as they work with patients


You’ll learn by shadowing physiotherapists as they work with patients. Watch as the therapist works with spinal injury patients, or as they teach teach children with special needs how to stretch out a muscle. Use this time to ask questions and learn as much as you can. We encourage you to take notes, so you can remember everything you saw and learned that day.


Expand your healthcare knowledge


On our Physiotherapy internship for teenagers in Nepal, we’ll teach you about the musculoskeletal system and how it relates to the study of physiotherapy. This is a great way to expand your practical medical knowledge. You may also be able to speak with orthopedic surgeons, nurses, or other medical staff, and ask questions related to physiotherapy.


Explore a new country and make new friendships


Throughout your time in Nepal, you will have plenty of opportunities to explore and travel! Projects Abroad staff will be with you, as you and your group do things like:


  • A traditional dance class
  • A yoga class
  • Visit ancient temples
  • Buy souvenirs at a local market
  • Visit Chitwan National Park for the weekend


These exciting activities give you chance to socialise with people your age from around the world, and also a chance to learn more about Nepal’s culture.


Where in Nepal will I work?

Chitwan

You will complete our Physiotherapy internship in Chitwan, Nepal. You will live in a hotel, and do observation work in a teaching hospital or in a spinal injury centre.


Known as the Medical City of Nepal, Chitwan is home to a variety of top-rated medical institutions.


Drawing people from all across the country, northern India and other parts of the Himalayan region, it’s become something of a medical tourism hot spot over the past few years.


When you’re not working, we’ve organised social and cultural activities to keep you busy, along with a weekend trip to Chitwan National Park.

Luchthaven transport, vluchten en visums

Na aankomst op de voorafbepaalde luchthaven, zal een medewerker van Projects Abroad je persoonlijk opwachten. Meer informatie over de verschillende luchthavens, oriëntatie en visums kun je op onze Nepal

Aankomstprocedure pagina terugvinden.


What are the aims and impact of this project?

The aim of this project is to give you physiotherapy work experience in a developing country.


You’ll learn directly from physiotherapists in a large teaching hospital and a spinal injury centre. We’ll show you different methods of treatment, and what techniques are used to treat specific conditions and illnesses. When you have a chance, do some research to see if the same procedures are practiced in your home country. Think about why there might be some differences.


The placements we work with aim to give disadvantaged communities access to quality medical care. Getting medical care can be a challenge in these communities, especially since 25% of Nepal’s population lives below the poverty line. 


Join a Physiotherapy High School Special in Nepal and broaden your knowledge of physiotherapy practices in a developing country.

Students on the Physiotherapy internship for teenagers in Nepal, enjoy cultural activities on the weekend.

Management plans

We hebben onze doelen en belangen van onze projecten uitgeschreven in onze Management Plans. Op deze manier kunnen we uitgebreid plannen welk werk moet gebeuren op elk project. Het helpt ook om het werk te meten en te evalueren wat we elk jaar bereikt hebben.


Het is uiteindelijk de bedoeling dat onze Management Plans de projecten effectiever maken. Je gaat daardoor deel uitmaken van een duurzaam project dat impact heeft waar het echt nodig is. Lees meer over onze Management Plans.


Onze impact

Elk jaar helpen duizenden jongeren en stagiaires om een verschil te maken over de hele wereld. Tijdens hun ervaring in het buitenland dragen ze bij tot de duurzame doelstellingen die we elk jaar vooropstellen, met de bedoeling om een duurzame impact te maken op de gemeenschappen.


Om alle verwezenlijkingen te verzamelen, ontwikkelen we elk jaar een Jongerenreizen Impact Report. Lees meer over alle projecten en hun impact in het afgelopen jaar.


Maaltijden en accommodatie

Je gaat accommodatie delen met andere Projects Abroad vrijwilligers en stagiaires in Chitwan. Op deze manier leer je de andere vrijwilligers en stagiaires beter kennen, kun je ervaringen uitwisselen, en samen de lokale omgeving beleven.


Tijdens onze Jongerenreizen proberen we ervoor te zorgen dat je een kamer deelt met minstens een andere vrijwilliger of stagiaire van hetzelfde geslacht en leeftijd. Jouw kamer is bescheiden maar comfortabel, proper en veilig.


De kostprijs van het project is inclusief drie maaltijden per dag.

Veiligheid en ondersteuning

Onze Projects Abroad staff is 24/7 beschikbaar, zowel door de week als tijdens het weekend, om je te ondersteunen en begeleiden. Zij zorgen ervoor dat jij je altijd veilig en comfortabel voelt. Mocht je ergens tegenaan lopen, dan zijn ze altijd beschikbaar om je te helpen.
