Even if you are not here in Cambodia, there is a lot you can do to support AHC. A donation of US$23 can provide treatment for one child, follow Facebook for patient stories or host a fundraising event. Your support ensures we can provide free, quality health care to impoverished children in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
As an officially recognized teaching hospital, AHC works with the Cambodian Ministry of Health to train government doctors, nurses, and health care workers in addition to its own staff. We are grateful to volunteer doctors, surgeons, dentists, nurses, lab technicians and many medical professionals who share their expertise. AHC can take pediatric residents who have completed at least two years of training for an elective resident rotation up to four weeks. We can also take final year medical students for an elective medical student rotation up to four weeks.
Pediatric volunteer program
We especially have a need for pediatric sub-specialists to volunteer during the module of their sub-specialty. View our 2010-2013 schedule.
Most non-medical volunteers participate in community-based projects involving home care, mobile clinics, health centers, and village health activities. However, in all instances, AHC reserves the right to determine the role of the volunteer.

We collect applications and recruit nine months in advance. Send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org.
