Resident Scholar Reflections

Julie Riley, MD

University of Missouri
Hue, Vietnam – February 17 – March 4, 2012
Mentor: Dr. Walter Beh, MD
Sponsored by: South Central Section of the AUA

Through the generous sponsorship provided by the South Central Section of the AUA, Dr. Julie Riley traveled to Hue, Vietnam with mentor Dr. Walter Beh. Dr. Riley and her mentor collaborated with Vietnamese colleagues

Reporting on her experience, Dr. Riley stated:
in the urology department. During her time in Hue, Dr. Riley was able to experience the differences in international healthcare.
“I did enjoy that we were able to give daily presentations. The conversations following these topics were very interesting to further understand the culture as well as understand some of the limitations on the Vietnamese surgeons. In addition most of the Vietnamese doctors wanted improved English particularly medical English and this provided a forum for them to practice.

I feel that the experience was very positive and I look forward to continuing international urology through active patient care as well as education and support to local urologists. I am very grateful to both the South Central Section and International Volunteers in Urology for
allowing me to participate in such a remarkable program. In addition, I am very glad that I was able to experience the culture and the medicine of Vietnam and to provide the local urologists with equipment and all knowledge that I could.”
