From patient care planning to examination and diagnosing, they meet the Ministry of Health standards well. People at the hospital are very happy with the high-quality human resources trained at DTU and we highly appreciate the enthusiastic working spirit of DTU graduates.”
For DTU faculty, the happiness and achievements of their students are the most precious spiritual gift, encouraging them to continue their profession of “cultivating the people” and to train generations of students from all over the globe imbued with the character of Duy Tan.
