1. PROGRAM MISSION  [Back]

The impressive development of modern science and technology is creating incisive change in our society. Vietnamese medical with properly invested modern equipment is gradually catching up to international level. However, for the modern medical equipment can operate properly, we need to have a group of high lever trained technician and engineer with high responsibility and influence in English. According to recently research, to 2020 in Vietnam, the well trained technical staffs needed is about 65000, but education programs in medical technology graduate approximately 1000 students per year (in 2015). Moreover, in traditional medical schools medical technology program is combined with nursing and the training is running at the technician levels.In reality, at the local hospital, the rate of technical staff in charge of the medical equipment is very low: only6% are engineers,35% are technicians or technical workers, and 59% are part-time officers. Therefore human resource demand in this area is extremely urgent, should be particularly concerned.
 

2. PROGRAM CURRICULUM  [Back]

The Medical Science and Technology program will last 3 academic years with 180 ECTS and  divide in two different section: “Clinical laboratory technologies” and “Medical instrumental technologies”.
