From November 2018, the Pham Ngoc Thach University of Medicine will send the first 32 students from the Vietnam-Germany Faculty of Medicine to Germany to pursue a training course named “practice year” in line with the Johannes Gutenberg Mainz University’s standards and regulations on training doctors.
The 1,600-bed Braunschweig Hospital is an establishment specialising in training. It is capable of meeting all requirements related to facility, technique, equipment, and personnel for training.
Assoc. Prof, PhD. Ngo Minh Xuan, Director of the Pham Ngoc Thach University of Medicine, said the Vietnam-Germany Faculty of Medicine was established in 2013 and the hospital has cooperated with the Johannes Gutenberg Mainz University to organise a general doctor training programme for six years and three months, in line with European standards.
As many as 120 students from the faculty are pursuing the programme. In their two last semesters, students will join a practice-oriented training course in a general hospital in Germany.
At the signing ceremony, Vice Chairwoman of the municipal People’s Committee Ngyuyen Thi Thu appreciated the close cooperation between the Pham Ngoc Thach University of Medicine and the Johannes Gutenberg Mainz University in training high-quality medical human resources for the city.
She expressed her belief that by the end of 2019, European-standard general doctors graduated from the first training course, will contribute to improving the quality of disease diagnosis and treatment in the city.
