An official agreement has been signed between UBC Medicine and The University of Medicine and Pharmacy (UMP) in Saigon Vietnam since 2012 to provide our 4th year Medical Students with the opportunity to gain additional clinical experience (4 to 6 weeks duration) before graduating from UBC Medicine.

UMP offers a wide range of specialties (from pediatrics to surgery to nutrition to Internal Medicine, etc…) where you will be experiencing a large variety of clinical cases due to the huge number of patients and the strategic locations of the affiliated hospitals in Saigon Vietnam. Under the supervisions of english speaking UMP Clinical Faculty, you will learn and acquire “hands on ” experiences while assisting your Preceptors in treating the patients.

UMP requires a minimum of 2 months advance notice (from the time they receive your application) in order to properly accommodate your requested elective.

For further information, please contact Dr. Hanh Huynh at the above email address or phone number.

We look forward to providing you with an excellent learning opportunity in Vietnam.

Best wishes.
