Faculty of Medicine



The Faculty of Medicine of Nam Can Tho University, formerly known as the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy, was established under Decision No. 34/QD-CTHDQT-DHNCT in July 2017. In 2018, the University Council Chairman signed Decision No. 28/QD-CTHDQT-DHNCT dated March 20, 2018, which established the Faculty of Medicine from the separation of the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy.

Since its establishment, the Faculty of Medicine has had university training tasks including medical imaging techniques, medical testing (formal system, learning by doing), and general medicine (formal system).

In 2021, with the close attention and direction of the University's leaders and the efforts of the entire staff, lecturers, and staff, the first training course (2017) in Medical Laboratory Technology, School of Medicine and Imaging Engineering, graduated with a high rate. Additionally, the majority of students after graduation found jobs to meet the needs of the labor market, especially during the outbreak of the epidemic in 2020-2021.


The Faculty of Medicine is responsible for developing training programs, organizing and implementing training activities, compiling textbooks, delivering theoretical and practical lectures, creating teaching plans, and assessing students' learning outcomes. Due to the particularity of the training industry, the Faculty also acts as a bridge, directly coordinating with medical facilities not only in Can Tho City but also in other provinces in the Mekong Delta, and creating and training human resources for local health.


Up to now, the Faculty's personnel structure includes a Dean of Faculty, two assistants (training and administration), and twenty subjects. Of these, there are eight basic interdisciplinary subjects and twelve clinical subjects.

The Department is a unit under the Faculty of Medicine, including a Head/Deputy Head of the Department, subject teachers, and lecturers. In the academic year 2022-2023, the Faculty will continue to consult with the Rectorate and leaders of the University to recruit qualified and experienced lecturers in the Health sector to perfect the personnel apparatus as well as form new programs and other specialties.

In addition, the high graduation rate of students in the two majors of Medical Laboratory and Medical Imaging Technology, as well as the positive feedback of students after graduation and the satisfaction of employers, are remarkable achievements of the faculty and staff of the Faculty.
