NDO/VNA – Nam Can Tho University on December 16 signed a cooperation agreement with Philips Vietnam, aiming to enhance the quality of the university's medical training.

Under the deal, last-year students in medical faculties, including medical imaging technicians and medical practitioners will engage in training programmes from basic to advance levels on different areas, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scanning techniques, with support of experts and lecturers from Philips.

Nguyen Tien Dung, Chairman of Nam Can Tho University, said that the programme is of great help for medical students to access world leading technologies. They will practice at Nam Can Tho University Hospital, which has 300 beds and is expected to put into operation in January 2022.
