ABOUT VINUNIVERSITY  
VinUniversity is a newly developed, private, non-profit university in Hanoi, Vietnam. It was established by Vingroup with a mission to be the first world-class, internationally accredited and recognized university in Vietnam. VinUniversity has two overarching goals: to excel in teaching; and to produce graduates and research that contribute to developing the key economic sectors of Vietnam. 

The formation of the VinUniversity Project has resulted from the collaboration of Vingroup with Cornell University and the University of Pennsylvania. Cornell provides academic consulting on Management, Engineering and Technology; and Penn focuses on the Health Sciences disciplines. Both Cornell University and the University of Pennsylvania are distinguished Ivy League institutions based in the United States of America. Cornell is involved in every aspect of the development of VinUniversity from infrastructure and campus planning to curriculum development and faculty hiring. Cornell’s SC Johnson College of Business is providing extensive academic advisement in a variety of areas, drawing from a wealth of faculty expertise at multiple colleges and units at Cornell University. Penn’s medical and nursing schools are functioning in a similar fashion to guide the formation of health science education at VinUniversity and to interface with Vinmec, Vingroup’s outstanding health system which currently encompasses 7 hospitals throughout Vietnam. VinUniversity aims to meet the QS 5-star rating standards and will include the following colleges within the University: a College of Business & Management (including Hospitality, and Real Estate); a College of Engineering and Computer Science; a College of Health Sciences. The University will be an English Medium Instruction (EMI) institution and plans to open for the inaugural class of students in Fall 2020. 

ABOUT VINGROUP 
Vingroup was established in Ukraine in 1993. Upon its relocation to Vietnam, the venture officially became Vingroup Joint Stock Company in 2012. Vingroup’s mission is “to create a better life for the Vietnamese people.” In 2016, Vingroup was recognized among the “Top 50 Most Valuable Brands in Vietnam” (by Brand Finance magazine). Today, Vingroup is one of the leading private enterprises in Vietnam, operating in eight core business areas including real estate, retail, hospitality, education, agriculture, healthcare, heavy industry (starting with automobile manufacturing) and smart technology. In 2016, education and healthcare became not-for-profit value-based systems. 

Pham Nhat Vuong is the founder and chairman of Vingroup, which has $3.97 billion USD in net revenue (2017) and a largest market capitalization value of $13.6 billion USD in Vietnam (2018). Chairman Vuong is a visionary and true patriot of Vietnam and firmly believes that education is the single biggest catalyst that can transform the destiny of an individual, society, and nation. His aspiration is to create a breakthrough in the Vietnamese education sector and to groom the next generation of leaders in the 21 century and beyond for Vietnam.  


THE OPPORTUNITY 
 

Graduate Medical Education (GME) programs at VinUni and Vinmec International Hospitals are aligned to international standards and customized for the Vietnam health care context. The program has embedded a competency-based curriculum framework to be well-positioned for international accreditation through the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education International (ACGME-I). This model of graduate medical education training is rooted on regular evaluation of 6 key competency areas for each resident trainee as well as graduated clinical responsibility and supervision. This prepares graduates to be highly-skilled and knowledgeable physicians who are competitive to either enter directly into independent practice or to further their clinical training in various areas of specialization. The VinUni and Vinmec GME programs will apply the latest evidence based teaching and learning methods including a 6-month foundational clinical skills curriculum, clinical teaching in both inpatient and outpatient settings, regular teaching conferences, patient simulation center experiences, and opportunities for research and scholarly pursuits.

This is a unique opportunity to join and contribute to the growing GME program with VinUniversity Health Sciences and Vinmec International Hospital. The position is a full-time faculty appointment with clinical responsibilities and a competitive start-up package.
