    The trip was very easy to organize, the staff in the USA are friendly and helpful with the planning of the trip, allowing me to go on with my exam while they took care of the trip and update me about the planning so I was able to keep track of the progress. At the placement, it was refreshing to see all dentists I worked with seemed passionate and did the best they could with the resources they had.
    Very good and adequate support provided by the local coordinator. The Kathmandu orientation given on arrival is very helpful in facilitating the understanding of local culture and practice. The coordinator is a great person and host and his wife is a friendly lady and a great cook. They went above and beyond their call of duty for me and nothing was ever too much trouble. The coordinator took us on a trip to the local attractions and around the city. Showing the local trades and the local way of life. His wife made really good traditional food too!. They are my Nepali new family.
