Currently, there are above 20 medical colleges in Nepal including both Governmental and Private sectors. Most of them are affiliated with Tribhuvan University (TU/IOM) and Kathmandu University (KU).

Koirala Institute of Health Science (BPKIHS), Patan Academy of Health Sciences (PAHS) and National Academy of Medical Sciences (NAMS).
