Over 5,000 spots open in govt institute for public health students

The Public Health Ministry’s Praboromarajchanok Institute, where public health workers get their higher education certification, announced on Friday that it will take 3,686 students in the nursing faculty and 1,875 in the faculty of public health and allied health sciences next year.


Kiattibhoom Vongrachit, the ministry’s permanent secretary, said this quota was based on the number of public health personnel required by the Public Health Ministry and other relevant government agencies.


The institution was named after Prince Mahidol of Songkhla, seen as the father of modern medicine and public health in Thailand. It was established in 1993 as the Institute for Health Workforce Development, and then renamed Praboromarajchanok Institute in 1995.
