2018 Recipient: Do Mai Hoa 02MPH

Dr. Do Mai Hoa is the Project Coordinator for the Residency Education Reform Project at The Partnership for Health Advancement in Vietnam (HAIVN), a Harvard University affiliated organization that aims to strengthen healthcare worker capacity by providing technical assistance, medical education, and help with strengthening policies in Vietnam. Before joining HAIVN, Dr. Hoa was the Deputy Director of the Health Management Training Institute at Hanoi University of Public Health (HUPH). She has more than 20 years of experience in training program design and health management in the public health sector across several major disciplines such as health management, quality improvement, and HIV/AIDS. Hoa was an AIDS International Training and Research Program (AITRP) fellow, an opportunity that served as a stepping stone toward her pursuit of an MPH at Emory. She has extensive experience collaborating with international programs dedicated to health system strengthening, including her work with the U.S. Centers for Disease and Control Prevention from 1997-2014 to develop advanced health management training programs in Vietnam. She has inspired others to pursue careers in public health, with several specifically choosing to work in the much-needed area of health management capacity development. Her contributions have led to multiple grants for HUPH used to build important public health training infrastructure at a crucial stage in Vietnam’s health sector development. Dr. Hoa holds her medical degree from the Hanoi University of Medicine in Vietnam, her Master of Public Health from Emory University, and her PhD from the Queensland University of Technology in Australia.
