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.
