Hospitals, festivals and buses all part of the experience!

Nepal was an experience that I will never forget! Being able to see things that you would never be able to see in a hospital in the UK, such as observing operations, births and much more! Living with a host family was great as they were so welcoming, friendly and always willing to help if you had a problem.

The hospital itself was quite basic however in some areas of the hospital they had more technology. Getting to the hospital itself was an experience, being on a bus with the locals! If you had a white coat on (which you have to on this work placement) you were considered to be a doctor!

Seeing the difference in the homelife, culture and religion from the UK was amazing to watch, like the festivals that they celebrate. I would highly recommend doing this project as it is an amazing experience!
