UNIS Hanoi Scholar Gains Entry into World-Renowned Medical School
Posted 03/03/2020 10:38AM

The second scholar to graduate from UNIS Hanoi is today one step closer to achieving her childhood dream of becoming a doctor, after she was awarded a place at an exclusive medical school.

Phuong Ly, a member of the Class of 2016, had one vision when she applied for a scholarship at UNIS Hanoi - to one day become a doctor of international standards in order to improve the lives of people in Vietnam. Her recent admission to the world-renowned Medical School for International Health in Israel is a remarkable accomplishment for a young girl who, once upon a time, could not have imagined a life beyond Hanoi.

Ambitious and determined, Phuong is firmly on the path to becoming a public health doctor. Now a fourth year student at LaFayette College in the USA, Phuong confesses the journey has been long and arduous but added, "One thing that brings me back to my goal despite the many exams and hurdles, is the thought that if I don't do this then who will? What I'm striving for won't only benefit me, it will benefit others."

The programme Phuong will be joining in the Summer requires her to relocate to Be'er Sheva in Israel. She'll study there for three years, with an opportunity to gain experience in a developing country such as India, before heading back to the USA for her fourth and final year of medical school.

Although Phuong has been awarded a scholarship to support this next step, she still needs to raise $50,000 this year. If you'd like to learn more, please contact UNIS Hanoi's Alumni Office.

UNIS Hanoi's Scholarship Programme offers bright and talented Vietnamese students from low income backgrounds an opportunity to study at the School, tuition fees waived until graduation.
