First International Postgraduate Course for Young Physicians

2 - 10 November, 2009

Kantha Bopha Academy for Pediatrics - KBAP

Siem Reap Angkor, Kingdom of Cambodia

 
The KBAP opens its international postgraduate course program for young physicians on November 2, 2009. The first one month course ends on November 10, 2009. The scientific program consists of the following subjects:
 
Lectures on general pediatrics, infectiology, immunology and diagnostic imaging will be given by renown visiting professors from Switzerland. Tuberculosis, Dengue fever, malaria, Japanese encephalitis virus infection (JEV) and HIV (especially blocking the vertical transmission) will be taught by the professorial staff of Kantha Bopha Children's Hospitals and Maternity. These instructions will focus on the theoretical and practical aspects (logistics) of infectious diseases in poor and tropical countries.
 
The course program includes a thorough introduction into the organization and management of a children's hospital and maternity in a poor and tropical country. Planning, construction and running of such hospital will be discussed by Dr. Beat Richner, founder of the Kantha Bopha Children's Hospitals. The philosophical, moral and economical issues involved will be addressed.
 
Regular observation of medical activity at the Kantha Bopha Hospitals under supervision by tutors is integrated in the course program. (Including diagnostic imaging with X-Ray, Ultrasound, CT and MRI).
 
Interested young physicians need to submit electronically an updated CV including a certificate of the final medical examination recognized by their country of residence with a brief certification of their actual medical activity. Please, use the following E-Mail address: kbcenter@online.com.kh . The course is free of charge.
 
For more information, please contact www.beatocello.com. The Kantha Bopha Hospitals are providing medical care for 85% of all Cambodian children. Inpatients and outpatients receive treatment free of charge. The Kantha Bopha Hospitals being equipped by facilities, medicines and drugs of western standard have been recognized for their best relation costs/healing rate worldwide. While large amounts of money are spent throughout the continents without proper impact, adequate use of finances might allow for dozens of Kantha Bopha type children's hospitals, according to expert's estimates. The question raised by these experts is: Where would the doctors come from that are able and willing to do this job? The KBAP intends to inspire and educate young doctors who might thus be motivated and prepared to take on a more demanding humanitarian task.
