The January Institute in Cambodia is an 8-week program open to students from the University of New South Wales and the University of Sydney, in Australia, who complete a training course prior to the program. Participants then spend three weeks working with BMET students and learning Khmer in Phnom Pehn before volunteering in small groups in the public hospitals throughout Cambodia for the remaining five weeks. Participants assist with critical medical device repairs, translation of manuals, preventative maintenance, and other services.
