The Go Global program has been operating in Cambodia since 2012 and we are very proud of the contribution students have made to the local community. As the placement progresses the students become increasingly independent and can begin to identify clients who require specific treatment that they are capable of providing or initiate health promotion sessions. We are fortunate to have partnerships with five host sites in North West Cambodia which include World Mate Emergency Hospital, Physical Rehabilitation Centre, Military Handicap Development Centre, Military Regional Station no.4 Hospital and Grace House Community Centre.
Students will have the opportunity to interact with clients whose main presentations include things like large bone fractures, amputations, brain injury, and rehabilitation needs. Students may also be involved in presenting education sessions and workshops. This is a challenging placement and students need to be able to rely on their clinical and theoretical knowledge whilst also relying on their peers and the local staff for advice and assistance.
