Medical University, Magway
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Magway Medical University. More than sixteen years have elapsed since the foundation of this university in 2001. It was founded by Professor Than Myint as its first rector. The second rector, with his untiring drive and excitement, coupled with his visions of Dr Maung Maung Win, had made so many people create the beautiful building and university.
I am honored to be rector of this university now because I know that today we have some of the best clinical and educational personnel in Myanmar so that our undergraduates can provide a first-rate medical training, especially with respect to its use in healthcare.
