Hanoi Medical University - HMU - (established in 1902 under a name: Indochina Medico-Pharmaceutical University) was the first university of Indochina. After the establishment of Democratic Republic of Vietnam, Hanoi Pharmacy Medical University had its first opening ceremony of a new school year in an independent country on November 15th, 1945. In 1947, in the mountains and forests of Viet Bac, a small number of staff with patriotism, the teachers and students of Hanoi Medico-Pharmaceutical University built a Medical University of resistance and taught in Vietnamese. Through international symposiums, the prestige of HMU was elevated. Many international research cooperations have been opened. Besides training and sending Vietnamese young doctors to overseas countries to practice, HMU also receives over 50 foreign students from France, Germany, Switzerland, Australia, England, etc. to stay and practice in Vietnam.
Priority is given to develop research. The task of masters and students of HMU is to carry out university and post university formation, scientific research and to serve medical practice. The HMU has matriculated 16507 medical doctors, 1505 oriented doctor specialists, and 143 bachelors. The HMU also has 9571 post-university students, among them, there are 342 doctors of sciences, 1134 student-masters. Along with its centenary of development and growth, the success of HMU in sciences and technology is also increasing.
Links to the health workforce crisis
EC has a new program that aims to strengthen the capacity of sufficient Vietnamese medical and scientific staff to provide the technical assistance needed in key skill areas that are now served by international consultants. The program will make Vietnam more self-reliant in in the needed training, coaching and advice to training institutions and health services all over the country, which is not possible at present. There are too few Vietnamese experts now to satisfy the needs of the universities, health system and health programs. With project support, the different faculties will strengthen not only the individual but also the organizational and institutional capacity for better health care in Vietnam. By strengthening capacity in these key areas in the selected faculties, not only will a large pool of human resources for health become available to all training institutions and health programs, but also a large number of teaching and learning materials including those based on information technology that can be available even for those working in remote areas where learning opportunities are few.
