Workshop: Faculty development in Da Nang, Vietnam
Location: Da Nang, Vietnam
The workshop had the purpose to assess the specific need of the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy of the University of Da Nang when implementing a new medical curriculum. The President of the University of Da Nang, Prof. Ing. Habil. Bui Van Ga, gave a brief overview on the various activities of medical training in Da Nang. Unfortunately, as the infrastructure for medical training is considered incomplete, support for medical training should not only include knowledge transfer and training of teachers but also hardware assistance, he concluded.
Actually, the medical students have to attend the teaching activities of the University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Ho Chi Minh City unless the teaching infrastructure of the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy of the University of Da Nang is improved.
So, the mail goal of the efforts for the implamentation of the medical curriculum in the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy has to be the installation of infrastructures for modern teaching. The different discussions had the main message that these efforts can only be carried out in the collaboration with the University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Ho Chi Minh City.
Also the English language knowledge of the faculty in Da Nang should be improved with English courses. The dean of the Faculty, Prof. Nguyen Huu Quoc Nguyen, proposed to care for the selection of a core team in Da Nang to serve as responsible team for the collaboration with the LMU in Munich.
