Dr. Kong Srey Nuch, Faculty of Medicine Officer & UP MD Program Graduate

Dr. Kong Srey Nuch, MD, B-Ed, graduated in March 2020 as a first-generation MD student of the University of Puthisastra and joined UP as a Faculty of Medicine Officer in May 2020. During her MD Program, she did electives in Plastic Surgery in South Korea and Austria, and in General Medicine in Thailand. In the years 2014 to 2018, she was also a volunteer in Project Sa’bai and Project Lokun. In 2019, her team got the 1st place in a First-Aid competition among 20 teams from Singapore and Cambodia, held at the Lee Kuo Chuan Primary School in Singapore; Dr. Kong is also a member of St. John’s here in Phnom Penh.

In her current position at UP, Dr. Srey Nuch has encountered many challenges due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, such as organising online lectures, online exams and hybrid classes. However, she is happy to have joined after graduating the same Medical School where she studied, to be part of a cohesive and helpful team and to be able to contribute to its growth.
