This project will focus on human resource training and scholarships for 1,500 doctors, pharmacists, nurses and medical and non-medical managers in Việt Nam and in the world by 2020.

Vingroup said the project aimed to bring drastic changes in quality healthcare of Vinmec at the international level and create resources for the future medical university of the group.

Specifically, the training would focus on cardiology, oncology, image diagnostic, and surgery, apart from anti-ageing and cosmetic surgery, while Vinmec would continue to develop training in its strength of obstetrics, paediatrics and others.

The scholarships, of which half would go to train doctors and pharmacists, and 25 per cent would be granted to the current medical staff as well as the potential medical personnel in Việt Nam. Once selected, they would be sent to leading countries such as the United States, Australia, Japan, and France, in addition to Germany, to have their master's and doctor's degrees. They would also be taught foreign languages to meet the international study programmes too, the group said.
