International cooperation

In addition to co-operation with national hospitals, public health facilities, The University of Kampong Cham and health institutions in the Kingdom of Cambodia, the Institute has expanded its collaboration with international universities and hospitals to share up-to-date information, knowledge, experience and technology on nursing, midwifery, laboratory and medicine. Moreover, classroom-based learning, combined with practical work at the Institute, within communities and hospitals, exposes students to extra-curricular activities through participation in national and international workshops on various health topics such as World No Tobacco Day, World Midwives and Nurse Day, Infection Control, Tobacco Control and Alcohol Control.
