MDGP Scholarship



Nepal's MDGP doctors are equivalent to Family Physicians, plus they have surgical skills.


NSI administers a scholarship program for post-graduate doctors who go on to work in RSSP hospitals.

MDGP doctors are Nepal's Family Physicians, all-round doctors who are capable of caring for patients of different specialties. The MDGP program is Nepal's oldest post-graduate training program.

As of 2012, NSI has enrolled 45 junior doctors into the MDGP scholarship program. Following their three years of training, these doctors are committed to serve in a rural hospital for 3 years.

There are now 11 NSI MDGP doctors in 11 government district hospitals.
