(Re-Announcement)

 
The Kingdom of Cambodia has availed an IDA Credit of US$15 million toward the cost of the Strengthening Pre-service Education System for Health Professionals Project from September 2020 to June 2026. The project Development Objective is to strengthen Cambodia’s pre-service education system for health professionals. The project will contribute in establishing a future generation of health professionals who can perform complex reasoning, deal with uncertainty, anticipate and plan impending changes, and undertake many other functions that are essential to improve quality of care on health outcomes. To realize this transformation, this project will invest in human capacity building. Capacity building will be done with faculty development courses, intensive coaching from experts, enhanced infrastructure, technology, and other resources to support new ways of teaching. The resulting new competency-based curriculum and effective teaching cohort promise to produce a competent health care workforce that will change the landscape of health care and be felt for many years after this project is over. Indeed, the lasting benefits will have a positive impact not only on the careers of trainers and students directly involved but also on the future cohort of students. Other self-sustaining aspects of the project include strengthening the regulatory framework that will shape the health professional education system and creating a semiautonomous public NEE center supported by students’ fees. At the training institution level, transformation will be reinforced by institutional reforms such as granted autonomy status, an expanded network of certified clinical training sites, and strengthened management information systems.
