Children’s health is so important. Because their bodies aren’t fully developed, they are most susceptible to illness, and their bodies take much longer to heal. A pediatric physician from the University of Illinois College of Medicine is an advocate for sustainable pediatric healthcare, and an active supporter of the International Pediatric Specialists Alliance for the Children of Vietnam, or IPSAC-VN.
In his five years with the University Hospital, Dr. Mark Holterman has maintained the position as professor of pediatric surgery and is committed to improving the quality of healthcare for children in Vietnam. The company supports medical facilities and medical professionals in Vietnam by providing medical personnel, supplies, and a host of other helpful resources. Thinking of the future, IPSAC-VN also has a scholarship program designed to help practitioners and medical professionals further their training and education in the United States. To qualify for the program, applicants must simply provide a letter of recommendation from their current institution that details the positive contributions they intend to make to the world of pediatric medicine.

Scholarship recipients receive $2,500 to help with their journey to the United States. For up to two months, scholars either receive training in medical research or participate in clinical exams. Following the completion of the program, students return to Vietnam where they share their experience with program supporters and explain how they plan to use their experiences to create advancements in pediatric healthcare.
