Phnom Penh and beyond

Our base in Cambodia’s ancient capital — Phnom Penh — is home to Southeast Asian culture at its most vivid. Colourful boats adorn the banks of the mighty Mekong River, Buddhist monks in rippling saffron robes offer prayers, ancient Hindu temples hide in the jungles, and the aromatic scent of the local cuisine create a feast for the senses. The city isn't without its modernities —  bars and clubs offer exciting nightlife, and cinemas-come-restaurants spill out onto busy streets. Outside the capital discover ancient temple ruins, untouched coastline, forested mountains, and national parks where leopards, elephants, and sun bears thrive.

In addition to your main placement in Phnom Penh, we highly recommend complimenting your city-based clinical experience with a week spent living in a rural Cambodian village. Living with a host family, you’ll learn local ways of life and experience traditional culture to its fullest; whether that’s learning to cook local specialities, or hiking to hidden temples. In the morning you’ll work in a local health post, from which you’ll assist in the treatment of village people from the surrounding areas, many of whom will present with advanced cases.
