As a developing country in transition, Vietnam continuously faces many unique healthcare challenges, and your support can help make a difference. Every $3,500 raised enables a Vietnamese Medical or Nursing student to complete a month-long placement at a teaching hospital of The University of Sydney, gaining invaluable skills and knowledge from our leading academics and practitioners. These placements create pathways for future collaborative research and opportunities for the next generation of potential leaders in the delivery of healthcare in Vietnam.

I always believe that "observation is the best teacher". Thanks to Hoc Mai Foundation, I observed, experienced and learnt a lot.
Vietnamese Medical Student (2015)

This trip to Sydney has been immensely rewarding to me. It has increased not only my clinical and academic knowledge but also my social skills. It was a privilege to collaborate with many dedicated inspiring doctors and staff.
Vietnamese Medical Student (2014)

Many well-documented differences exist between the Australian and Viet Namese medical systems and much of this is linked to availability of resources. However, I witnessed a very important similarity – the equal dedication, work ethic and desire to achieve the best outcome for patients exhibited by the doctors and nurses, day in, day out on all the wards. It is that similarity which has left the greatest impression on me and it is this joint passion for excellence in patient care, which continues to drive the success of the Hoc Mai Foundation.
