In the past, there has been no leadership and/or management competencies formally integrated in the curricular of clinical pre-service training in Cambodia. The National Institute of Public Health offered a leadership and management training program in 2020 tailored for public health managers. This paper describes the process of how the training program was developed. A technical working group was set up and played a key role in designing the competency-based curriculum. The training required a total of 170 hours to complete, among which 38% for management skills, 32% for leadership, 12% of self-motivation, 11% for team building and 8% for personal development. This design followed the good practices of the leadership training program development and it fits well with the Cambodia health care context.
