This is a privately held healthcare organisation in Vietnam which provides primarily health care to expats who reside in Hanoi and others parts of Vietnam. They are the largest and first established foreign, privately held, international health care provider in Vietnam. They are building more outpatient clinics and also will have built a hospital for inpatients within 24 months to supplement fix clinics in major cities. They take pride in providing personalised support, excellent customer service and comprehensive medical care for the best value targeted to expats and local populations. Their team of physicians come from diverse locations such as the US, Canada, Israel, France, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, UK, Japan, Philippines, Australia, Argentina and Vietnam. This is a growing and thriving health care organisation with big growth potential and plans.
All contracts include a four months’ probationary employment period. They prefer for Doctors to work a five weeks’ locum first for both the Physician and the Clinic to determine if the Doctor and the Clinic are a good fit. This is like a try/buy scenario that may be in the best interests of both the Doctor and the Clinic?
It’s important to understand that we are looking for more long-term candidates. Although the contracts are one-year contracts, all of their physicians have been with them for a number of years. The ongoing, continuation of Physician’s work is crucial from their perspective and that of their patients as the patients always sees the same doctor. Therefore, the clinic takes pride in creating long-term relationships amongst their physicians as well as with their patients.
Last but not least, the work permit and the doctor license processes in Vietnam can take up to four months from the time the Physician has provided all of the required documents to approval of the medical license. Typically, it takes overseas Physicians one to three months to provide needed dossiers. Therefore, with this kind of time and effort invested on behalf of the Physicians to obtain their vocational registration/license and the necessary visas, a minimum two years’ commitment is required.
