Student Electives

University of Sydney ELECTIVE students to Nepal
The Patan Academy of Health Sciences (PAHS) is just to the south of Kathmandu and is a new partner for Sydney Medical School and a new medical school for Nepal. The focus of PAHS is community-based medical care and the curriculum is problem-based with a strong focus on training Nepali young people for rural regions of Nepal. Our newly formed partnership with PAHS enables Sydney Medical School students to spend time at the Patan teaching hospital and where possible in rural community health centres.
