Karnali Academy of Health Sciences Welcomes MBBS Students from India

Jumla, Nepal - In a significant development for medical education in Nepal, the Karnali Academy of Health Sciences (KAHS) has opened its doors to three students from India, marking a milestone in the institution's commitment to fostering an international learning environment. The inclusion of these students in KAHS's Bachelor of Medical Sciences (MBBS) program underscores the academy's growing appeal as a center of excellence in medical education across the South Asian region.

The students, two females, Sakshi Gupta and Kasturi Singh, from Jammu and Kashmir, and one male, Kartike Mishra, from Allahpur, Uttar Pradesh, are part of the academy's initiative to diversify its student body and encourage cross-cultural exchange and understanding. Their arrival coincides with the academy's announcement of an increased quota for its MBBS program, from 20 students in its first year to 50 students this year, reflecting the Medical Education Commission's growing confidence in KAHS's educational capabilities.

International Collaborations and Expansions

KAHS has been proactive in establishing international collaborations to enhance its educational offerings. A notable partnership with Sunway Medical Center under Sunway University, Malaysia, aims to facilitate exchange programs for medical professionals, thereby enriching the learning and training experience for both institutions. Additionally, the academy has entered into agreements with Memorial University of Canada for research and advanced medical training programs, further broadening its international footprint and academic prestige.

In a move to integrate traditional knowledge with modern medical practices, KAHS is also initiating the establishment of a research center for medicinal herbs in collaboration with Shanxi University in Chongxi Province, China. This venture is part of KAHS's broader strategy to make significant contributions to healthcare improvement through research and education.

A New Chapter for Medical Education in Nepal

The inclusion of international students and the establishment of global partnerships signal a new chapter for KAHS and medical education in Nepal. By attracting students and professionals from around the world, KAHS is not just enhancing its educational environment but is also contributing to the global medical community. These developments are poised to elevate the quality of healthcare education and services in Nepal, offering promising prospects for current and future medical students.
