Vietnamese doctors visit Royal North Shore

Clinicians from Vietnam did the rounds at Royal North Shore Hospital recently aiming to improve care for their patients back home.

As part of Hoc Mai Foundation’s latest intake, 16 overseas participants including two nurses, one pharmacist, a medical student administrator and 12 doctors spent three weeks gaining experience from RNSH clinicians.

Hoc Mai Foundation Board Chair Associate Professor Chris Pokorny said many hospital staff gave up their time to speak with the Vietnamese delegation who hoped to take their new-found knowledge back to their patients.

“Two other highlights were a visit to Hunters Hill Family Medicine Practice organised by Dr Andrew Bowes and a tour of the clinical skills and simulation centre at RNSH,” Chris said. 

“The following three weeks involved clinical placements, again supervised by many members of the medical and nursing staff to whom I am sincerely grateful. 

All of the group gained a lot from the experience and hopefully this will translate into improved medical and nursing care for their many Vietnamese patients
