How would you like to be a part of shaping midwifery training in Nepal?
The Kathmandu University School of Medical Sciences (KUSMS) started the first Bachelor of Midwifery (BMid) program in Nepal in October 2016. KUSMS was established in collaboration with Kathmandu University and Dhulikhel Hospital, which is the university teaching facility on campus. This is an independent, not for profit, non-government institution that is a renowned healthcare and educational facility in Nepal. One of the goals of Dhuilkhel Hospital is to reach underprivileged people in the community and to achieve this goal, midwifery services have been extended to its 17 outreach centres across the country.
As a Midwifery Teacher Trainer, you will support the current midwifery faculty and students in the classroom, clinical and community settings. Your role as an Australian volunteer will be to assist theoretical and clinical activities for midwifery students, work with staff to improve the quality of midwifery care at clinical sites including, the hospital and outreach centres, collaborate with donors and implementing research activities.
Your role will be invaluable to the quality of health care services in Nepal through increasing the skills of health professionals.
