Nguyen Thi Tuyet

Nguyen Thi Tuyet, MD, PhD, Asst. Prof.

Co-Program Director, Pediatrics Residency Program, College of Health Sciences


Dr. Nguyen Thi Tuyet graduated from Pham Ngoc Thach University of Medicine in December, 2004. From 2005 to 2008, she was recruited into the Internal Medicine residency training at Hospital 115 in Ho Chi Minh City. Following that, she performed research training and postdoctoral research at Yonsei University, Wonju College of Medicine on the toxicity of high phosphate in insulin-secreting cells and vascular smooth muscle cells. Her research have been published in American Journal of Physiology – Endocrinology and Metabolism, FASEB journal, Journal of Biological Chemistry and other journals. She spent one year at Tan Tao University, School of Medicine as lecturer cum Head of the training department before joining the VinUni Internal Medicine Residency Program as Curriculum Development Director since 2017.
