Hanoi Medical University (HMU) was established in 1902 and is amongst the largest and oldest universities in Vietnam. HMU has trained more than 17,000 medical doctors and about 10,000 post-graduate students. HMU institutions are involved in both development of advanced clinical medicine as well as in high quality public health research. The Public Health Faculty is, in addition, one of the few institutions in Vietnam which provides specialized training in public health. HMU as well as the Institute of Preventive Medicine and Public Health have good relationships and collaborations with national and  international institutions.

International collaborative countries include Sweden, France, United Kingdom, the USA, the Netherlands, Australia, Japan and Indonesia. HMU and the Faculty of Public Health are also very important advisors for the Ministry of Health in Vietnam regarding strategies and policies for the health sector. HMU has close collaboration with several major hospitals where students are trained and research is conducted, among them Bach Mai, the National Pediatric Hospital, the National Hospital for Tropical Diseases and the National TB Hospital.

A Grants Office will shortly be opened with the aim of improving competence in the acquisition of external funding through research grants from national and international sources. This involves identifying appropriate funding sources, help with planning and writing applications, budgeting and then negotiation and contract handling after successful evaluation. This is part of a research network including Karolinska Institutet, Oxford University Clinical Research Unit in Vietnam, Gothenburg University, Hanoi Medical University and the University of Medicine and Pharmacy in HCMC.
