(CPV) – American partners and the Vietnam’s Ministry of Health (MOH) are collaborating to build a national accreditation system that certifies the quality of continuing medical education (CME) for medical professionals.

In 2009, Vietnam passed the Law of Examination and Treatment in Vietnam, which requires all medical professionals to have 48 hours of CME every two years to maintain their professional license. Continuing medical education is very important because it helps doctors keep their skills up to date.

Over forty staff from the MOH, hospitals, and universities are attending the two-day workshop in Hanoi on March 26th – 27th, which is organized by the Administration of Science Technology and Training (ASTT) under MOH, Partnership for Health Advancement in Vietnam (HAIVN) and supported by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (US CDC) and President of the US Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).

CME is an essential part of the national strategy to improve the capacity of health care workers in the nation, as well as one of the key factors in ensuring the quality and uniformity of human resources, which translates to equity and quality in health care services.

Since 2004, HAIVN has been working with MOH to improve medical education of university students and practicing physicians./.
