A day in the life: Chhay Sokdalis

27-year old Chhay Sokdalis is a graduate student at the University of Health and Science.

As of late, she has become a teacher of medicine at her school as well.

In addition to her work at university, Chhay Sokdalis is an officer for the Provincial Drug Office.

It’s her job to go out to various locations and take surveys of inventory at pharmacies.

I spoke with Chhay Sokdalis early in the morning, while she was asking a pharmacist what products they were selling.

She was friendly, even though the pharmacist was busy and unresponsive.

After finally getting the answers she needed, she had the pharmacist sign a letter to verify that the inventory was correct.

Aside from surveying pharmacies, Chhay Sokdalis remains devoted to her teaching.

“My teaching time is divided into two separate methods: theory and practice,” she said.

“Besides my work for the Provincial Drug Office, which comes first and foremost for me, I always take time to do my best at teaching medicine.”

“When I work, I’m either in my office or at university; unless, I go out to some provinces to teach at different universities.”

Chhay Sokdalis is the recipient of a two-week medical internship in Singapore.

She hopes to strengthen her skills while there, and looks forward to a continued successful career.
