Also within the framework of the program, Doctor Specialist II. Ha Duc Minh, Head of HIU Administration and Human Resources Department, represented the university to briefly report on clinical teaching and learning for semester I of the 2023 - 2024 school year for the 4th year medical students and the coordination of admission and training of postgraduate and continuous programs between HIU and Thong Nhat General Hospital (Dong Nai).

Thong Nhat General Hospital (Dong Nai) is a first-level hospital; the number of actual beds is 1,050/1,050 planned beds. The hospital has 47 departments (11 rooms, 26 clinical departments, 10 paraclinical departments). The large number of patients coming for medical examination and treatment with various diseases and the small number of students doing clinical practice in the hospital's departments are good conditions for students to approach patients and learn clinically. With limited difficulties such as remote locations or some students having to stay in residence for the first time, the Semester I practice session achieved good results, with up to 49.7% of students ranking excellent, 26.8% of students ranked differently, and the remaining average accounted for 23.5%.>

Institute of Postgraduate Training - Continuous Training, HIU's postgraduate training departments coordinated with the Hospital's clinical departments to organize practical training for 71 postgraduate students and organized training for 3 consecutive courses with 354 students. With the results achieved, HIU also offers some experience in organizing training and fostering to coordinate well with the Hospital in the future.
