MD Students fly to Singapore for Project Lokun

10 medical students from years 2, 3 and 5 joined a trip to Singapore organized by the Project Lokun Kh and the National University of Singapore (NUS), as the part of a program of Development, Education and Clinical Services.

The aim of this project is to strengthen the relationship between the University of Puthisastra and the Project Lokun Committee of NUS. This trip provided an opportunity for some of our medical students to experience the advanced healthcare environment of Singapore. The students visited the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and toured the Singapore General Hospital. The students were very impressed by the NUS campus.

During the 5-day trip, they also attended three general meetings about the Project Lokun Kh to share experiences and plan future initiatives. Ms. Soeung Dalin said that the trip exposed the students to a completely different healthcare environment in respect of the Cambodian one, and that this was an eye-opening experience. The workshops that the students attended allowed them to expand their knowledge and encouraged them to study harder.

Ms. Sea Arewin added that this exchange program allowed her to make new friends and enhanced his communication skills.
