Prof. Dr. Nguyen Vu Quoc Huy, rector of Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy (Hue UMP) in Hue City, Thua Thien-Hue Province, central Vietnam received the title of Knight of the National Order of Merit of France, conferred by the French president, on Saturday.

French Ambassador to Vietnam Olivier Brochet, on behalf of French President Emmanuel Macron, awarded the order of merit to Prof. Huy at a ceremony held at Hue UMP, which is under the auspices of Hue University, for his great contributions to the Francophone medical community in Thua Thien-Hue as well as to the France-Vietnam relations.

As a member of the Francophone medical community in Hue since the early 1990s, Prof. Huy has made significant contributions to its development for over three decades.

He has been a strong advocate for establishing relationships between the community and its partners, including universities, university hospitals, regions, and non-governmental organizations in France, as well as the international Francophone community.

The rector has also championed and supported the teaching and learning of specialized French and promoted French-Vietnamese cultural exchanges.

These efforts have created opportunities for young Vietnamese doctors to take refresher courses in France for at least one year.

Addressing the ceremony, Ambassador Brochet highly appreciated Prof. Huy’s scientific research achievements and his major contributions to fostering the cooperative relations between Vietnam and France, as well as between Hue UMP and French universities and organizations, especially in medical cooperation and French language promotion, the Vietnam News Agency reported.

With his relentless efforts, Prof. Huy has helped hundreds of Vietnamese and French doctors pursue overseas study, enhancing their professional knowledge and experience, remarked Brochet.

The French ambassador commended Vietnamese doctors participating in training programs in France for their exemplary professional skills, diligence, and hard work.

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Le Anh Phuong, director of Hue University, praised Prof. Huy as an easygoing, exemplary, and highly qualified teacher and scientist, devoted to his colleagues, students, and patients.

Phuong added that Prof. Huy has made significant contributions to the development of Hue UMP and Hue University over the past many years.

Speaking at the ceremony, Prof. Huy remarked that the Order of Merit is for everyone in the Francophone medical community in Hue, recognizing their valuable contributions over the past 30 years.

Prof. Huy earned his doctorate degree from Germany’s University of Düsseldorf in 2003 and was promoted to professor in 2019.

Currently serving as chairman of the Vietnam-Germany Friendship Association in Thua Thien-Hue, Prof. Huy is also an honorary member of the Vietnam-France Friendship Association in the province and the French Association of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
