Slusher Teaches At Angkor Children's Satellite Clinic

Tina Slusher participates in a Women's Day activity at AHC Satellite Clinic

During Tina Slusher's March 2013 trip to Cambodia, she observed at Angkor Children's Hospital's Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. While there as an observer, she was asked to do some informal teaching in their PICU and some formal teaching for their residents, consultants and staff. 

PICU staff report having made several changes to practice as a result of Dr. Slusher's teaching and recommendations.

As part of that invitation, she also was able to enjoy a day a their satellite clinic site, where she taught and observed. The AHC Satellite Clinic is about 20 miles outside of Siem Reap, part of the government-owned Sotnikum Referral Hospital.

Dr. Slusher relays the message that AHC welcomes further U of Minnesota residents who wish to participate, and that this open invitation is largely due to our longstanding partnership  with AHC.

Angkor Children's Hospital is a non-profit hospital that provides care to children in northern Cambodia, with arrivals of more than 400 children and families every day.
