Nepal Exchange Program

About the program

 As part of the Virginia Tech Carilion Wilderness Medicine Fellowship, in partnership with our colleagues in the Mountain Medicine Society of Nepal, an exchange program has been created for Nepali resident candidates which includes shadowing shifts, teaching and assistance with preparing for the US residency match. 
    During Dr. Gehner’s research trip to Everest Base Camp in 2014, she became very close with several of the doctors who work at Everest ER and the other small hospitals in the highlands. These doctors are all experienced in austere medicine and trauma as a result of their work at Everest ER. As they seek to further their training and career their ultimate goal is to complete a US residency program, specifically one in Emergency Medicine. 
   Since these doctors have so much to offer in their knowledge and experience in Wilderness and Mountain Medicine, and VTC has much to offer in the way of exposure to the US Emergency Medical system, an exchange program was developed to benefit all involved.
