NDO/ VNA – President Tran Dai Quang has urged the lecturers and students of Hanoi Medical University to increase their participation in scientific research, particularly in emerging diseases.

The State leader made the request whilst addressing a ceremony held in Hanoi, on November 14, to mark the university’s 115th founding anniversary.

President Quang recognised the university’s efforts in training high-quality human resources and developing modern and traditional medicines, making Vietnamese medicine a shining example throughout the world.

The university’s most significant achievement is the combination of medical academic knowledge with the practice, training, studying and providing of medical examinations to improve public health, he said.

The President asked the university to make concerted efforts in order to become a leading medical training and research establishment in Vietnam, which trains both Vietnamese and foreign students, applies research results both at home and abroad, as well as providing services for both the Vietnamese and foreign communities.

President Quang also ordered the university to effectively implement the Party and State’s policy on education-training and protect and fine-tune public health, particularly working to renovate education and education autonomy.

On the occasion, the university was bestowed a first-class Labour Order.
