Through its partner organization, the Global Health Collaborative in the Department of Family Medicine at Boston University School of Medicine, Global Primacy Care actively supports the projects being conducted in Cambodia to assist the University of Health Sciences, Phnom Penh to strengthen and improve the overall quality of education as its medical school as an investment in the long-term impact of the collaboration.

Specific goals of the project include:

  • Partnering with the University of Health Sciences (UHS) in Phnom Penh to review and revise the Year 7 & 8 undergraduate medical curriculum to better prepare students for careers in primary care and family medicine
  • Leading faculty development workshops to teach faculty how to develop competency-based curricula to medical students
  • Mapping curriculum to the Ministry of Health guidelines to identify training gaps so that the gaps can be closed to improve the quality of medical education
  • Supporting the development of a student-led Family Medicine Interest Group at UHS to promote primary care
  • Leading educational reform with scholarship to online course in Medical Education for students and faculty

By working with faculty and students at Cambodia’s leading medical school, the “train the educators” approach assures continuous quality improvement in the education of the country’s future doctors while building access to primary care services with a group of physicians trained in Family Medicine.

Your tax-deductible contributions to this program will support the effort of these and other projects bringing primary health care services to poor and rural areas in Cambodia.
