A Visit to Dhulikhel Hospital Dhulikhel, Nepal


Under the leadership of Dr. Elizabeth Bailey, Director of Global Health Dermatology, faculty and residents at Stanford have the opportunity for ongoing collaboration with the Department of Dermatology at Dhulikhel Hospital-Kathmandu University Hospital in Dhulikhel, Nepal.  Dhulikhel Hospital is a teaching hospital for Kathmandu University dedicated to equitable quality care and includes both tertiary level hospital facilities and 20 community-based rural health facilities.  The dermatology department was founded in 2004 and is dedicated to providing high quality care and to training future leaders through its dermatology residency training program.  Residents and faculty at both institutions participate in twice monthly video case conferences to share knowledge and expertise on some of the most challenging dermatologic diseases.  In addition, Stanford dermatology resident, Dr. Stephen Lewellis, had the opportunity to complete a clinical elective at Dhulikhel Hospital last year, and we look forward to future opportunities for educational exchange in the future.
