Hanoi Medical University (HMU) (Vietnamese: Đại học Y Hà Ná»™i) is the oldest university of Vietnam and is located in Hanoi. HMU was founded in 1902 by French during the French colonisation under the name Indochina Medical College. The first headmaster of HMU was Alexandre Yersin who was the co-discoverer of the bacillus responsible for the bubonic plague or pest, which was renamed in his honour (Yersinia pestis).

The Faculty is divided into 4 Departments with 46 staff, including 41 lecturers and 5 teaching assistants:

Department of Oral Surgery – Periodontology.

Department of Maxillofacial Surgery – Prosthodontics.

Department of Operative Dentistry and Endodontics - Pediatric Dentistry – Orthodontics.

Department of Basic Dentistry - Community Dentistry.

HMU, originally called Indochina Medical College, was founded in 1902. It was the first modern university in Vietnam, and the second of all universities in Vietnam after the Temple of Literature. It was located in Le Thanh Tong street, next to what was then its practice hospital, 108 Hospital. In 1961, Hanoi University of Pharmacy was spun off from HMU and took residence in the old campus. The site was also shared with the College of Science of the Vietnam National University, Hanoi.

HMU was moved to a newly built campus in its current address in Ton That Tung street - named after one of its principals, and next to the largest hospital in Hanoi - Bach Mai Hospital. It has also offices in Viet Duc Hospital. The list of affiliated training institutions includes National Hospital of Pediatrics, National Hospital of Obstetrics and Gynecology, E Hospital, National Cancer Hospital, National Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion, National Hospital for Tropical Diseases, National Hospital of Dermatology and Venereology, Duc Giang Hospital and among many more, its own practice institution, Hanoi Medical University Hospital.

HMU is considered the most famous medical university in Vietnam. The exam to enter the university is very competitive. In the past, it was the only medical university that recruited students in all Vietnam. For a long time, it has been the only university which did not apply the priority by regions during the national university entrance exam (i.e.: students in rural or difficult regions, who wish to benefit 'the bonus mark by regions', must apply in other medical universities).

In 1975, Department of Odonto-Stomatology was founded with 5 staves who participated in both teaching students and treating patients at the clinic. In the 1980s, the teaching staves were complemented with Odonto-Stomatology doctors trained in Ho Chi Minh City and Ha Noi and pediatric dentistry-oriented nurses. The Department has been training full-time Odonto-Stomatology doctors starting from 1999.

On 10/11/2004, Faculty of Odonto-Stomatology was established on the basis of upgrading from Department of Odonto-Stomatology. Initially, the Faculty used to have 3 Departments. Currently, the Faculty consisted of 4 Departments: Oral Surgery - Periodontology, Maxillofacial Surgery - Prosthodontics, Operative Dentistry and Endodontics - Pediatric Dentistry – Orthodontics, Basic Dentistry - Community Dentistry.

Besides continuing to develop both quantity and quality of the teaching staff, Faculty of Odonto-Stomatology also focuses on the improvement of facilities and equipment, contributing to better teaching, studying and scientific researching results.
