    the location advantage

    A strong public-provate healthcare system, a large pool of skilled labour and favourable business environment means that Biratnagar has become one of the most popular destination for medical services in Nepal. Central to this development has been concerted push by the government to establish Biratnagar into a Metropolitan City and develop it as a regional hub for medical tourism, with a focus on providing world-class facilities and highly trained healthcare workers. Strong links with industry and excellent research capacity have also helped turn Biratnagar into a leading centre for referrals from different sections of Nepal, as well as some parts of India.

    We thus serve a diverse local community where you will develop your clinical skills and knowledge. Our location in the South-east of Nepal will help enhance your experience. Moreover, Biratnagar offers you many exciting opportunities to develop an understanding of health and the treatment of disease in a global and international contest. Many curricular and extra-curricular developments are underway to support learning in this area.

    The comparatively small size of the school (around 100 in each year group) allows staff to know students individually and this encourages a friendly atmosphere. You will be allocated a mentor who will be concerned with your personal welfare and academic development as we aim to provide a supportive environment in which you can thrive. Our advising system is highly regarded within the University.

    Through such outreach satellite centres, BMC offers a unique opportunities for our undergrad students to familiarize themselves with hands-on experience that would enhance their ability to acquire skills in dealing with current health issues through direct exposure the mass and users.
