The State leader made the request 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 shining in the world.
The university’s most significant achievement is the combination of medical academic knowledge with practice, training, studying and providing medical examinations to improve public health, he said.
The President asked the university to make concerted efforts to become a leading medical training and research establishment in Vietnam, which trains both Vietnamese and foreign students, applies research results both inside and outside the country as well as services both Vietnamese and foreign communities.
President Quang also ordered the university to effectively implement the Party and State’s policy on education-training, protecting and fine-tuning public health, particularly work to renovate education and education autonomy.
On the occasion, the university was bestowed a first-class Labour Order.
