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?


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.

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.

Misurare il nostro impatto

Ogni anno, migliaia di giovani volontari che partecipano ai nostri Campi di Volontariato per Studenti delle Scuole Superiori fanno la differenza in tutto il mondo. Durante il loro periodo all’estero, contribuiscono al raggiungimento di obiettivi a lungo termine e ad avere un impatto positivo nelle comunità locali.

Per documentare i risultati raggiunti grazie al loro aiuto, elaboriamo un rapporto annuale chiamato High School Specials Impact Report. Scopri di più sull'impatto dei nostri progetti e leggi l'ultimo report.
