From July 27-29, 2005, the First International Conference on the Development of Biomedical Engineering in Vietnam was held in Ho Chi Minh City. This conference was jointly organized by the Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (Vietnam) and Tufts University (USA).
Vietnam is an economically and socially dynamic country, and interest in biomedical engineering activities has grown considerably in recent years. The traditions, environment, and conditions within the country offer unique research opportunities, and the Vietnamese government and university policymakers are aware of the importance of this field. To address urgent educational and research needs in biomedical engineering, a domestic and international exchange of experiences as well assupport and collaborations in research, education and entrepreneurship in this field is needed.
