The Masters in speech and language therapy commences at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Ho Chi Minh City in March 2019. Four foundation subjects will be taught in this spring session. Vietnamese academics will teach Linguistics (Dr Ly Kha) and Speech Sound Disorders (Dr Ben Pham who recently graduated with her PhD at Charles Sturt University in Australia). Visiting Australian academics will teach Communication across the lifespan (Prof Lindy McAllister) and Atypical language development in early childhood (Dr Natalie Munro). Students then formally commence the 2 year masters degree in September 2019. Many of the masters subjects will be taught by visiting Australian academics.
Planning is well underway for the start of the speech and language therapy stream in a Bachelor degree in rehabilitation at Da Nang University of Medicine, Technology and Pharmacy. Students are currently doing their generic foundation year and will start the 3 year speech and language therapy stream in September 2019. The speech and language therapy subjects will be taught by a range of Vietnamese clinicians who have completed the post-graduate certificates in speech and language therapy run by TFA at University Pham Ngoc Thach over the last decade, as well as visiting international clinicians and academics.
These two degrees will require up to 50 skilled clinicians from overseas to supervise clinical placements and support local SLTs. We would love to hear from people interested in acting as volunteer supervisors.
