Education at AHC is diverse and extensive and lays at the heart of the organisation’s mission to improve healthcare for all of Cambodia’s children.
We develop, deliver and oversee a comprehensive range of training for nurses, doctors, allied health professionals and students across Cambodia.
Professional Education at AHC
Ensuring the next generation of Cambodia’s healthcare workforce is skilled and prepared to deliver expert care is central to AHC’s mission. As one of only three paediatric training facilities nationwide, AHC has a unique role in delivering high-quality teaching and hands-on, clinical training to medical and nursing students, as well as healthcare professionals from across Cambodia.
AHC originally introduced the nursing process, which is now standard across Cambodia, and offers training country-wide for nurses and midwives. Each year, over 500 nursing students will cycle through AHC’s wards.
AHC also offers a Certificate of Paediatric Nursing, the only one of its kind in Cambodia.
Through a strategic partnership with the national public health institutions, we offer paediatric residency placements, internships for medical students, and fellowships for practicing Cambodian doctors. In addition, AHC offers paediatric subspecialty training – one of the few institutions nationally with such expertise.
Our education and medical departments collaborate to produce a paediatric healthcare conference, Cambodia’s first national multidisciplinary conference.
AHC also hosts short courses and workshops for government healthcare professionals, ranging from the Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS) course for intensivist training, to Infection Prevention and Control courses.
