UPDATE ON the US Clerkships and Summer Course 2019


On May 22, 12 medical students arrived in Chicago to start their summer clerkship at St Mary Medical Center, Hobart IN and Methodist Hospital, Merrillville IN. As usual, they follow physicians in the hospital and the offices. Students learn how to interview patients, use the electronic medical records (EPIC system), do some basic examination skills.

Pham Phương Linh asked the medical history of a patient while recording the data on the electronic medical records

Huỳnh Quốc Quân was checking the blood pressure of a patient

Nguyen Dao Anh Khoa was talking with a patient who is a modern day cowboy handling cows in a farm while riding a horse.

On the week of June 10 to June 14, all TTU students attended the Problem Based learning (PBL) class at the Indiana University school of Medicine. These classes were offered at TTU in Vietnam twice a year by Dr Ernest Talarico, PhD. Here the students examined the specimens of the brains

In the PBL classes, students will work in group to solve the problems from basic sciences review (anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, etc), investigations to managements.

Ngo Ngoc Le Uyen and Tran Thi Tuyet Van were at the emergency room. Because they worked in 12 hours shift so Pham Anh Quan was off today.

On Monday June 17 and Tuesday June 18, four medical students (Truong Hoang Bao Kim, Nguyen Tri Si, Duong Danh Nguyen Hien, and Le Dieu Van) and one junior faculty (Nguyen Dao Anh Khoa) will attend the meeting Artificial Intelligence in Medicine in Chicago.

While at IUP, all five TTU SBE students will present their research on Monday August 19, 2019. It is an important landmark for TTU SBE, because this is the first time the SBE students present their research abroad.

This summer will be hot, not only in the US, in Indiana, Texas, Maryland or Pennsylvania. In Long An, the SBE will have a summer course, 100% US style, about Public Speaking and Office Professionalism by Dr Donald Tyler and Effective Negotiation, Mediation and Arbitration in the Context of International Business by Dr Henry Webb, current vice Dean of the SBE.
