You will be one of 10 medical doctors per 10,000 people!

Medical workers has always been the core force, taking the lead in disease management, epidemic prevention and suppression, from diagnosing and treating diseases, even planning and taking measures to isolate and prevent epidemics, etc. They have always been the mainstay in the protection and care of people's health, making a significant contribution to the development of economic – cultural – and all aspects of social life.

Doctors are a must in health care ecosystem

In a national scientific conference of the Vietnam Medical Association, according to the Ministry of Health, an average of 12.5 million people have hypertension each year in Vietnam and 3.5 million people have diabetes, 2 million people with chronic heart and lung disease and nearly 126,000 new cases of cancer. That makes non-communicable diseases in Vietnam the leading causes of deaths. Nearly 8 out of 10 deaths are caused by non-communicable diseases.

Training human resources for health is critically essential, especially when epidemics or disasters occur on a large and prolonged basis. In addition, the quality of life is increasing day by day.

As the population is getting aged and ratios of chronic illnesses increase, people will seek high-levels of care which use the latest technologies, diagnostic tests and therapies. According to reports, the need for medical doctors is forecasted to grow by 15% between 2016 and 2026, much faster than all other professions. The growing and aging population is expected to drive the demand for health care services.

According Ho Chi Minh City Family Physicians Association report, the health workforce in Vietnam is still very low compared to the other countries worldwide. Specifically, in Vietnam, there are only 8 doctors per 10,000 people on average, or even in many other localities, this figure is much lower. Meanwhile, according to Resolutions of the Government and Health sector, Vietnam needs to reach to the rate of 10 doctors per 10,000 people.

Therefore, training healthcare human resources is essentially necessary, especially when epidemics or disasters occur on a large and prolonged basis. In addition, the quality of life is increasing day by day. Health insurance is increasingly spreading from urban to rural areas, thus more and more medical workers are needed, in both quantity and quality.
