Taking students

Masters level


I earned my M.D. as the valedictorian at Ho Chi Minh University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) in 1996. Then I worked as an intern clinical medical doctor at Infectious Diseases Department of Ho Chi Minh University of Medicine and Pharmacy and also worked at the Hospital of Tropical Diseases in Ho Chi Minh City until 1998. In 2002, I gained my PhD at Kyoto Institute of Technology (Kyoto, Japan) with a thesis on the antimalarial mechanism. Between 2002 and 2007, I worked a postdoctoral fellow at Kyoto Institute of Technology. From 2007, I have been working and teaching for Nagasaki University on a broad field of research including clinical research, epidemiology, global health, ethical issues, education, research methodology, evidence based, and health policy using various skill sets of biostatistics, data mining, survey, and systematic review and meta-analysis.


My “teaching slogan” is “anyone can do research and publish the paper under the proper supervision”. Therefore, my teaching mainly focuses on conducting real research and learn from failure and success of each research. Because I have experience in various fields of medicine and health, I am able to help students in further discussion of developing their ideas, should they have difficulty finding a supervisor in those particular fields.

I established the Online Research Club for medical students in 2010 to enhance global medical students’ research success, using an online education program. On the occasional of joining TMGH this year, I opened an Online Research Education Program (ORCEP) for TMGH students and alumni to continuously learn with global students and help one another. The Online Research Education Program (ORCEP) provides an online Facebook-based mentoring platform and research environment for students to explore the world of research under the supervision of established researchers. The ORCEP serves to equip students with basic research knowledge and practical skills in conducting research, which includes idea development, protocol preparation, data collection and management, advanced scientific writing, data analysis, collaboration, and leadership. Health and medical students, as well as young health care workers without any research experiences, along with research supervisors in the field of medicine and global health, are all welcome to join the program by sending email to or requesting to join the group at  An active new student can expect to gain the experience to conduct research and get at least one publication after two years.

All TMGH students and alumni are welcome to join. Non-TMGH students, however, must 1) have a valid ID card, a transparent and active Facebook; 2) have not joined or conducted any research yet; 3) have not involved in any research group yet; and 4) spend at least 30 min per day to learn and conduct the research.
