Dr. Biraj Mankarmacharya, a Nepali physician from Dhulikhel Hospital in Katmandu, recently observed the Hadassah Medical Center’s Trauma Unit with much interest, since his hospital is hoping to create a similar unit.

While at Hadassah, Dr. Mankarmacharya also met with physicians and nurses from the Hadassah-Hebrew University Braun School of Public Health and Community Medicine. Dhulikhel Hospital is an independent, not-for-profit, non-governmental medical facility, conceived and supported by the Dhulikhel community.  One of its cardiologists trained in Israel.
