Description of the program
The training program for Specialist Doctor level II in Otorhinolaryngology helps learners to obtain the specialized knowledge of Otorhinolaryngology. To help learners to become specialist doctors level II in Otorhinolaryngology, we would like to create for our learners optimal learning conditions. Therefore, a small number of enrollees are admitted to the program each year (about six learners per year). The admitted learners must pass the entrance exam for postgraduates organized by the university.
The program comprises of two main parts, theory and clinical practice which are delivered in Vietnamese. It is an advanced and learner-centered program to promote learners’ independent research ability under the supervision of professional professors. Learners have opportunities to learn about specialized knowledge of Otorhinolaryngology through the following courses: ENT emergencies, pathology of the ear, pathology of rhinosinusitis, pharyngo/laryngopathy, and Laryngology.
Theory and practice lessons are normally organized at standard practical facilities, for examples, Department of Otorhinolaryngology - Thai Nguyen National Hospital and Department of Otorhinolaryngology - Hospital of Thai University of Medicine and Pharmacy. Moreover, learners in this program can work as doctors on duty and take part in surgeries, emergency, management of emergency cases, and so on. The program also provides learners practice lessons on models and patients under the supervision of experienced clinical lecturers.

To complete the program, learners have also conduct at least 01 research in ENT under the supervision of specialty professors.

These are very important skills in the professional development of learners later on.
