Dr. Nguyen Huu Linh
Languages Spoken: Vietnamese, English, French
Dr. Linh Nguyen
Dr. Linh’s pathway to medicine was sealed at the age of eight, when a talented pediatrician gave him expert care during a child illness—prompting him to tell his mother that he’d already decided what he wanted to be. By 1993, the gifted student had graduated from the prestigious Hue Medical University, undertaking postgraduate studies and his pediatric residency at the same institution. This led him to a position at Hue Central Hospital, one of the three largest hospitals in Vietnam, working there for 11 years before moving to Saigon. There, he took up a position at FV hospital, where he practiced until joining FMP in late 2018.
Dr. Linh also undertook professional training at an international level while studying general pediatric practice in France as well as courses in hemato-oncology in both South Carolina and Tennessee in the United States. The studies gave him a far broader depth of experience in treating a range of pediatric illnesses, as child oncology patients are immunocompromised and thus highly susceptible to multiple distinct pediatric conditions, which require complex and dedicated treatments. Dr. Linh’s experiences led him to an appreciation of medical coordination between multiple departments in the course of pediatric care, skills he has applied during his practice here in Vietnam. He is also a longstanding member of the Ho Chi Minh City Pediatric Association.
With his extensive medical background in pediatrics, Dr. Linh brings unique experience to our team and a comprehensive approach to the care of both foreign and domestic child patients. During his consultations, he takes particular care in cooperation, communication and education of parents to ensure a better treatment environment for children in medical need. Our active and challenging work environment has brought Dr. Linh to a satisfying new turn in his career at a time when his adult children are taking on their own university studies, giving him time to focus on his medical practice and his own personal passion—tennis.
