Ask Ava is a community of Nepalese physicians in US who have completed their USMLE and are applying for residency . This initiative is supported by HFN. Physicians who are doing their residency here or who are practicing in different fields in medicine will counsel, support and mentor applicant physicians individually or through facebook group. We understand the whole process of USMLE, residency application, interview and the match is very stressful. This initiative will bring together residency applicants so they can share their experience and help each other. Physicians who have already gone through this process will be able to counsel and mentor new physicians to support them in this journey. Please join us in facebook and follow our blog.
Facebook Group: This is a closed group. If you are Residency applicant and want to join the group please send your facebook request to one of the administrators.
* Disclaimer: Participation in this group is voluntary and free. Ideas and opinion expressed in facebook group and blogs are those of individual writers and not the official position of HFN.
Ask Ava Teleconsult is an online program that supports Physicians working in rural Nepal in their clinical practice by providing specialty teleconsult service through specialty providers in USA. This initiative is supported by HFN.
Physicians practicing medicine in USA have voluntarily signed up to provide teleconsult to physicians practicing medicine in different fields in Nepal. We have a group of physicians practicing internal medicine, cardiology, radiology, neurology, psychiatry, pediatrics, oncology, infectious disease who can provide teleconsultation. Asynchronous Teleconsult support is provided to practicing physicians in Nepal based on clinical information they present, so physicians abroad are not directly involved in evaluation and treatment of patients.
Please contact admin if any physicians in USA wants to volunteer in this teleconsult program. Any physicians who are practicing in Nepal and have access to reliable internet service are welcome to join as well.
*Disclaimer: Teleconsultation provided by consultants is based on best clinical practices to support clinical decision making. It is primary physicians responsibility to provide service based on local and individual patients context. This service is not intended to replace care provided by primary provider or existing specialists and does provide support for emergency patient management .
