(CPV) - In Hanoi, on May 24, the Hoc Mai Foundation launches the Academy for leadership in medicine, a joint initiative between the Hanoi Medical University and the University of Sydney.
The Academy aims to prepare talented young Vietnamese doctors for leadership in Vietnam’s health care system by equipping them with the knowledge and skills needed to drive positive change in clinical care, medical education and research.
Its training program, which will be conducted in Vietnam and Australia, will add to participants’ postgraduate experience and build their relationships with academics from the University of Sydney’s School of Medicine.
“Young doctors selected for the Academy will play a key ongoing role in Vietnamese healthcare, particularly in providing education and training for future generations of medical students and graduates”, said Professor Kerry Goulston, Deputy Chairperson of the Hoc Mai Foundation.
This leadership program will help raise clinical care in Vietnam to a new level. In the long term, it would help to make healthcare practices in Vietnam safe and sustainable.
The Hoc Mai Foundation (a non-profit organisation) was founded in 2001 by the University of Sydney. Professor Goulston and the late Professor Ton That Bach, former Rector of Hanoi Medical University, established the foundation’s medical education and exchange program.
So far, other Hoc Mai programs have trained more than 200 doctors from Hanoi hospitals./.
