Kantha Bopha Academy for Pediatrics - KBAP

The KBAP opens its second international postgraduate course program for young physicians on November 1, 2010. This second intensive course will be repeated after the success of the first course in 2009. It ends on November 6, 2010. 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 and Japanese encephalitis virus infection (JEV),Cholera, will be taught by the professorial staff of Kantha Bopha Children's Hospitals. 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 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.
Interested 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.

For more information, please contact 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 have been recognized among humanitarian projects worldwide for their best costs/healing rate. 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 (maternity including), 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.
