Vietnam Medical Internship

     Comparative Literature is excited to begin offering the Vietnamese Medical Internship Program beginning Summer 2017. Interested UGA students will be given the opportunity to travel to Vietnam and to choose from a selection of the best hospitals at which to intern. It will also be possible to register for certain courses through Athena to get UGA class credit while in Vietnam. Also offered are cultural/language courses that will be in the form of in-person class lectures taught by UGA's Vietnamese Instructor and will be done in Saigon or during informal trips to other regions of Vietnam. This can be done in conjunction with the internships at the hospital. Students will get real life experience with what happens in the hospitals, as well as interact with the Vietnamese medical students who will also be there.

     Applications for the Vietnam Medical Internship in Saigon are now available. To apply, print and fill out the following form (Vietnam Medical Internship Application Form)
Please send your application with a non-refundable application fee of $15 to Ms. Trang Nguyen, 137 Joe Brown Hall. You can alternatively drop off your application and the fee in the Vietnamese Program Office (137 Joe Brown) on Tuesdays and Thursdays 2-3pm.
