In 2020, DTU continues to enroll health science students. Doctors are playing an especially vital role during the Covid-19 epidemic and have known as the “Warriors in White”, on the frontline of the fight to save patient lives. Doctors are respected worldwide for their dedication and skills in dealing with thousands of diseases for which no cures yet exist or with declining health due to environmental pollution. Duy Tan University educates and graduates highly-qualified health science professionals and expands its international partnerships to apply advanced teaching methods and to invest in the latest equipment to enhance training standards.
DTU signs an agreement with the Seirei Community from Japan
DTU began offering a General Nursing major in 2013. Until now, the faculty has graduated 1,200 Bachelors of General Nursing. A qualified nurse must be professional, compassionate, careful and responsible, because their work is critical to the health and well-being of their patients. Students must learn to solve all types of medical problems and how to operate equipment. They practice at hospitals and medical centers to broaden their knowledge and experience.
DTU partners with large American universities, to share curricula on the most advanced international medical and pharmaceutical subjects and invites foreign lecturers to DTU. These include the University of Pittsburgh, ranked 7th in medical research, and the University of Illinois in Chicago, which has the largest training programs in the US, as well as others from Ben Gurion University of the Negev, in Israel, and the Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore.
In addition, DTU has signed agreements with organizations such as the SEIREI Social Welfare Community and the Suganuma Group in Japan and LC Partners. Partnerships have also been established with universities in Israel, Sweden, Thailand and the Philippines. DTU students will have the chance to experience foreign environments and ultimately qualify for excellent future careers.
Recently, DTU has partnered with Fooyin University in Taiwan to introduce an international Master of Nursing program, in order to meet increasing demand at home and abroad. Three outstanding DTU postgraduates have already successfully defended their dissertations in English and been granted Master’s degrees by the Fooyin University.
