Health Camps

Our health camps are arguably the largest in scale out of all of our interventions since we would be serving hundreds of villagers at a time— providing them with health checks, doctor consultations, as well as prescribing them with medication from our pharmacy for absolutely no price at all.

School Visits

At Medical Outreachers, we hold the belief that to accomplish our ultimate objective of fostering a self- sustaining, healthy community with sound health and hygiene practices, it is imperative to initiate education on such knowledge from an early age.

That is why we make it our goal to visit as many schools as we can during our trips, educating students on our comprehensive Health Curriculum spanning 7 topics with various difficulties specifically designed for students of different ages, as well as providing them all with health checks on diseases common in the local community.


Household Visits

EVERYONE loves household visits, each household you interact with is a new experience every time. You'll get to engage directly with your service targets with the help of our brilliant translators—surveying them on their health knowledge and practices, observing their living conditions all while correcting them on their misconceptions and faulty practices immediately. 

This has been the main focus of our January Evaluation trip earlier this year and there was not a day when we did not feel fulfilled with the impact we have made on the community.

Village Talks

Fun fact: this intervention used to be under our larger Health Camps— we would provide health checks, the villagers would go to our specialist doctors and then listen to our village talks while waiting to enter the pharmacy to collect their prescriptions.

However, after careful evaluation on the effectiveness, we have decided to separate Village Talks from Health Camps entirely and make them their own intervention.

Village talks are similar to Health Education in that we would also be educating villagers on various health-related topics suited for everyday life. It's just that this time round, our demographic would be a bit older so we'll have to adapt and tweak things a bit.


Train the Trainer


Now that we've educated the kids and the adults, what's in it for the actual healthcare professionals? Our ultimate objective is to develop a self-sustaining community with sound health and hygiene practices, so are we actually gonna leave them out?

Well, of course not. Welcome to Train The Trainer, or TTT as we call it. This is where we use our more complicated PowerPoints to educate local healthcare workers such as ambulance staff, health post workers and educated volunteers. Due to the more complicated nature of the materials, most of the education would be carried out by nurses/doctors we bring over there with us and we would take up more of an advisory role.

Other Directions

Now that you’ve heard of all our main interventions. Let's talk about some new goals that we have set our sights on for this trip.

After careful observation and evaluation of the data collected from previous trips, we have found that mental health is something that definitely needs to be expanded upon in our interventions. Most locals do not even know how to deal with their negative emotions properly, let alone having to deal with any trauma leftover from experiencing the 2015 Earthquakes. 

We believe that with all our progress— getting officially recognized by the municipal government for our continued efforts and statistics collected over time that prove we are in fact making a significant impact on the health knowledge and practices of the population, now is an excellent time to tackle mental health related issues affecting our service targets: we are already giving “psychological first aid” to villagers who attend our village talks, and teaching healthcare workers how to properly give PFA when we’re not in country during TTT. In a culture where women’s rights really isn't a hot topic, we already brainstormed innovative, sustainable ideas on how we can improve the mental wellbeing of Nepalese women. 

Tackling the discrepancies between different regions is also one of our biggest objectives. We wish to help areas with limited health knowledge and inadequate health practices by creating customized resources that more comprehensively address their specific health issues.


With a powerful foundation, forward-thinking ideas and an ever growing passion for service, the 15th Executive Committee of Medical Outreachers Team C is devoted to making a monumental impact on our service targets in Nepal.

And we would love for you all to join us.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Why Medical Outreachers?
    If you are looking for a society that balances doing serious work with having loads of fun with your fellow medical students, Medical Outreachers is the perfect society to join! While we spend a great amount of effort holding meetings to plan our service projects, we also know that a big incentive of joining a society in university is to meet friends beyond our PBL group, Ocamp group, or even our universities. Medical Outreachers is very close-knit society and each team would meet up regularly for lunch/dinners and for activities such as picnics, canoeing, bowling etc - birthday surprises are obviously a given as well. After all, it is always good to find a supportive friend group that will be by our side throughout the 6 years of medical school. With a sharp focus on community service, you will be able to show care for people from many different walks of life. By interacting with populations that you will serve in the future as a professional, you can understand their real needs and better equip yourself to be the best doctor possible. If you join us, not only can you provide direct hands-on services to the needy, you can also gain insight on what goes on behind the scenes of NGOs, be it finance, promotion or management.
  • How is the workload like?
    Since Medical Outreachers is a certified charitable organisation, we do have to put a lot of time and effort in maintaining connections with external parties, organising databases, planning events and recruiting helpers. However, throughout the 10+ years that MOHK has been run, all of our members have had more than enough time for their own hobbies and studies apart from society work. After all, time management is the name of the game in medical school!
  • What are the post-interview tasks?
    In order to assess your knowledge on our society and our services, we designed a set of tasks for you to complete. Examples of what you would do include proposals, design work, year plans and so on. The tasks you would receive depend on your post preferences!
  • How long is my term of office?
    We change our executive committee each year. As such, you will be working in the society for 1 year!
  • What are the posts available?
    We have a total of 22 spots in the executive committee. The posts availabe include President, Vice President (3), Financial Secretary (1), Financial Assistant (2), General Secretary (1), Editor for Humans Of Medical Outreachers (2), Public Relations Officer (3), Publications and Promotions Officer (3), Executive Officer (6)
  • How do I know about my application status?
    We will keep you updated through email. Remember to check your emails regularly!
  • What is Creative Photo Sharing?
    In order for us to learn more about you beyond your past achievements, we want to know you as a person. Let us know what your hobbies are, what places you like, what your favorite food is....anything! Feel free to showcase 5 pictures of your life in any way you can think of!



I signed up for this knowing that ‘Project Namtar 6 and Bharta 2’ was something unique, a rare opportunity to experience life in a place very different from our own. What I did not expect, however, was that it would end up being one of the most memorable experiences of my university life thus far, if not my entire life.

Going in, I had a shallow understanding of the living conditions and practices of households in less-developed regions of the world. Many lived on nothing more than simply what was essential to sustain life–a fireplace, mats, food, a pipeline for water and a latrine. Yet the genuine kindness and hospitality of almost every person we encountered across the 22 days would make me believe that they were the richest in the world. 

As we walked along the village streets, children and adults alike would smile and wave at us. As we arrived at each household, we would be greeted with “Namaste”s as they presented us with traditional handmade rugs to rest on. The warmth, joy and laughter I experienced from spending time with the Nepalese community was about as real as it gets. 

Across the three weeks there, time slowed down in the best way possible. Beyond experiencing the outside world, my trip was too filled with introspection, self-discovery, and numerous opportunities for personal-growth. Gratitude, struggle, wealth, friendship, ignorance, happiness… These were among some of the things or ideas that found themselves scrutinised upon in my travel journal. 

All I can really say is that - I just want to go back :) 
धन्यवाद नेपाल (Thank you,Nepal)
