TSUM VALLEY MEDICAL MISSION is recruiting family practice nurse practitioners, physicians, and physician assistants as well as women’s health clinicians, and registered nurses for its October 2018 effort. We provide comprehensive primary care and public health education in this Himalayan valley described by veteran hikers as the “Shangri-La of Nepal.” The Tsumbas, as they call themselves, are gracious and grateful, a reflection of their Tibetan Buddhist culture and remote locale. The trek is 25 days with ten days of care provision along the way. Our trek company manages all the details from airport pickup to departure for the flight home. Porters carry our belongings. We need only carry our day pack. Mission leader and veteran family nurse practitioner, Rachel Frazin, divides her time between St Paul, Minnesota and Alaska, where she provides medical care as a locum tenens.
