Presenting gifts to young volunteer doctors (Source: CPV)
The course is carried out by the Ministry of Health and the Hanoi Medical University as part of a project to send young doctors to work in mountainous, remote and isolated areas, as well as in border areas and islands with difficult socio-economic conditions.

A total of 31 young doctors will be trained in ten specialties in two years.

Before being enrolled, the participants were recruited to work in hospitals in Hanoi and in 15 disadvantaged districts in seven northern provinces.

The trainees will be sent to work in districts as per their registration to work from two to three years. After graduation, doctors who were sent from the 15 disadvantaged districts will be granted long-term work contracts at the districts’ hospitals or healthcare centres./.
