and swallowing disorders.
TFA assisted in the planning and funding of the first ever full-time, two-year postgraduate training program in Speech Therapy and a 10-month paediatric Speech Therapy course at Pham Ngoc Thach University of Medicine in Ho Chi Minh City. From 2010 to 2017, three of these programs were delivered and have successfully trained 65 Vietnamese speech therapists.
Currently, TFA works in partnership with a number of educational and clinical institutions throughout Vietnam to deliver on our mission of bringing speech therapy to Vietnam.
From Hanoi in the north, to Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) in the south, and places such as Hue and Danang, we are focused on creating new university courses, helping establish new clinics with the speech therapy graduates of our past courses, supporting the training of interpreters and translators, and contributing to graduates’ continuing professional development.
