Students registering to participate in the Medex Project into Mortality and Morbidity amongst Nepalese Trekking Staff and Porters 2010
If you would like to participate in this study then please register below.
This is an ideal study for medical student electives but would be suitable for anyone with a passion for Nepal and ethusiasm for this project. The data is collected by questionnaire. The first study will take place during March / April 2010 and, if successful, will be repeated October / November 2010.
You will need to commit 5 weeks to this project from arrival in Kathmandu. Medex and Porter's Progress UK will fund an experienced Nepali guide and interpreter as well as ethics committee costs both in UK and Nepal. All travel and accommodation within Nepal for the duration of the project will be provided by Sherpa Brothers PLT (A Kathmandu based Trekking Agent) and a schedule of these costs is included in the investigators information pack. All costs associated with travel to Nepal, visas, travel insurance trekking permits, accommodation and food within Nepal and travel within Nepal will be your responsibility.
