In November 2018, a 34-member delegation visited Vietnam with College of Medicine Dean Han-Pin Kuo. Public Affairs Office staff joined delegates from Wanfang Medical Center and Shuang Ho Hospital to hold seminars at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy and Bach Mai Hospital.
The seminars focused on medical education and cancer. They attractedexperts in thoracic and internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, surgery and medical education. These events strengthened relationshipswith local host institutions and expanded TMU’s international influence as well as Taiwan-Vietnam bilateral relations. Such interactions also help promote Taiwan medical technologies in Vietnam.
The delegation also held two recruitment interview sessions where prospective staff and students could talk with TMU professors in relevant fields. Interviewees shared their academic experiences and future research plans, resulting in recruitment of 41 Vietnamese students.
To better connect with Vietnam-based Taiwanese, Dean Kuo and Public Affairs Dean Jenny Su had a dinner meeting with 35 business leaders to seek support for TMU inviting students for advanced training to improve Vietnam’s medical care quality. The university also provided medical treatment discounts for donors.
The delegation visited Hong Bang International University and Thanh Nhan Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City on the recommendation of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office. The collaboration discussions focused on TMU’s medical technologies and educational strengths, as well as possible research collaborations and exchanges of students and staff.
