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.

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.
