Bureau of Medical Laboratory Services

Ph. Sam Sopheap, Chief of the Bureau of Medical Laboratory Services

The Bureau of Medical Laboratory Services is responsible for medical laboratories in Cambodian government hospitals and Ph. Sam Sopheap is the chief of this bureau. I went to visit Ph. Sam Sopheap and her vice chief to discuss the distribution of blood culture media bottles produced in Cambodia. They had some important advice on how to proceed and about validating the bottles. They were also interested in attending the training that Vladimir will be conducting on proper blood collection at the Battambang Hospital.

I am very pleased that this office has been elevated to the status of a Bureau within the Hospital Services Department. Ph. Uch Monipheap explained the organizational chart to me. Dr. Sau Sokunna is the Deputy Director of the Hospital Services Department and responsible for the Bureau of Medical Laboratory Services. Dr. Sann Sary is the Director of the Hospital Services Department. I was fortunate enough to be able to meet with him briefly and tell him about the work of DMDP. Dr. Sann Sary had just returned from the northern province where the fighting between Thailand and Cambodia is taking place.
