Opportunities in American Samoa
American Samoa has one acute care hospital and five primary health care centres. It also has one post-secondary education institution: the American Samoa Community College. Located in Mapusaga near Pago Pago, the College offers associate degrees in a range of fields including liberal arts, science, and teaching.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities
Because of its remoteness, American Samoans tend to undertake CPD via distance learning. POLHN is an ideal platform for this, with courses targeted specifically at health professionals from the Pacific Islands. If students are unable to access the internet, courses can be completed via CD or at a learning centre. For further information on POLHN in American Samoa, please contact Jasmay Amataga (email here).
