Dr Keang Suy
Dr Keang Suy is a paediatric clinical microbiologist and infectious disease doctor who has worked at the Cambodia Oxford Medical Research Unit (COMRU) at Angkor Hospital for Children (AHC) in Siem Reap, Cambodia since 2017. Keang’s research interests focus on children with infection, particularly bacterial infections and AMR. He aims to become a leader in clinical health research in Cambodia and train Cambodia’s next generation of health professionals and clinical researchers.
Currently taking an online Postgraduate Diploma in Global Health Research at the University of Oxford, Keang’s main role is to care for patients with infections on the AHC wards and in its intensive care unit (ICU), consult on infection cases where diagnosis or management is difficult, and to provide antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and infection prevention and control (IPC) training to students and staff.
He provides support for both clinical staff and laboratory staff so that the microbiology laboratory can provide the top-notch patient’s care services.
In addition, Keang helps run AHC surveillance projects for hospital acquired infections and invasive infections and is actively involved in several observational research studies.
After graduating from medical school in Phnom Penh in 2014, Keang joined a paediatric training program at AHC and received a Certificate of Paediatrics in 2017. He also completed the International Postgraduate Paediatric Certificate program, a joint program between Sydney Children’s Hospital Network and The University of Sydney Australia, in 2016. In 2022, Keang completed a clinical microbiology and infectious disease fellowship at AHC and a Diploma in Medical Microbiology from Pacific Region Infectious Disease Association, Australia.
