our mission

Vietnam Health Clinic (VHC) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving access to health care for underprivileged communities in Vietnam. Over a span of two weeks, VHC hosts a mobile health clinic, providing medical, dental, optometric, pharmaceutical, and therapeutic services. With the help of student members and healthcare professionals along with our local community, sponsors and volunteers, we have been able to provide aid to over 13,000 patients over the past eight years.

To continue delivering quality health care to these communities, VHC's upcoming mobile health clinic will be in the summer of 2019. Our healthcare professionals and student members who join us for the trip help us as providers and personal interpreters. What’s unique about our clinic is that we focus on providing student members with valuable clinical experience working alongside healthcare professionals. If you would like to apply to be a student member or healthcare professional for our next clinic in Vietnam, please click on the respective links for more information.

In the process of fulfilling our goal, we collaborate with local medical students and doctors in Vietnam in a joint effort to minimize health disparities in rural communities. We have also collaborated with non-profit organizations in Vietnam such as the Friends of Hue Foundation, the Wellness Global Foundation, and ASSORV: Association for the Support of Orphans in Vietnam.
