The two universities discussed future collaborations to promote medical training, research and education, and initiated planning for specific programs. TMU also presented the TMU ambassador letter of appointment to Dr. Huynh Kim Hieu, who will liaise in future collaborations.


November 18, 2017, was the 70th anniversary of UMP, and TMU President Chien-Huang Lin, Vice President Chieh-Hsi Wu, Dean Pei-Shan Tsai and Office of Global Engagement support staff attended the commemorative celebrations. TMU’s president presented UMP President Tran Diep Tuan with gifts on behalf of the university. TMU representatives also visited TMU’s affiliated hospital at Hai Phong Medical University and the BAI-CHAY Hospital in Quang Ninh Province to gain a better understanding of local medical needs, provide practical recommendations and consider future collaboration opportunities.

The visiting TMU representatives also offered to conduct student interviews at HPMU and UMP, allowing Vietnamese students and faculty to meet face to face with relevant faculty. These meetings provided opportunities to share academic experiences and research plans as well as facilitating academic exchange.
