Becoming a physician and dedicating entire life serving in community health care is great mission. Despite arduous as it is, there are still many adamant-dreamed people who are devoting all of their best to medicine.

However, the question remained for many Vietnamese is: “Why there are not so many talents of the industry mentioned on the Medicine world map, while other field is rising significantly with researches and famous stars?”

What Prof. Thach Nguyen said – one of an expert in cardiology of the United States and the world, currently being Acting Provost and Dean of the School of Medicine of Tan Tao University (TTU) really struck us: “When being asked why choosing Medicine, “It’s my passion since my childhood” is what they got…. Because my parents are doctors…. Or because of losing loved ones, I don’t want that happens to others. However, not all of them becomes good doctors. Even there are those who can’t graduate …”. Indeed, for most of the field, passion and motivation are the keys to achieve our dreams. And for Medicine, it’s more like a mandatory catalyst for students.
