WHO IS PROFESSOR DZUNG VU
A proud husband, father and grandfather, Dzung is a very humble man with an amazing mind and strength of character. Holding a senior lecturer position at the Univeristy of New South Wales for 30 years, and most recently as Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Notre Dame Australia, Sydney for the last 5 years, Dzung’s love of teaching continues to flow to the next generation of surgeons and doctors. On top of this love for teaching, Dzung is an amazing photographer with the knowledge and a drive coming from the first camera he had as a boy growing up in Vietnam. With a keen scene of travel, photography is a love he continues to this day and shares with his brother.
Prof Dzung Vu has been honoured many times throughout his amazing career in medicine including a full feature by our very known ABC Television Australian Story in 2006. In the words of Dr Charlie Teo, “Dr Dzung Vu, who’s become a legend in the medical community. He’s at the forefront of a crusade to maintain the traditional skills of physicians and surgeons.”
