R.I.C.E Project



Founded by Dr. Joseph Rosen, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and adjunct professor at Dartmouth College, RICE Project consists of  two components: Reconstructive International Cooperation Exchange and Remote Interaction Consultation Epidemiology.

Within the framework of the first component, a team of nurses and surgeons has visited Vietnam several times a year to perform advanced complex surgical reconstructions for Vietnamese children and exchange skills, knowledge, and culture with local healthcare providers.

The key partners of R.I.C.E project in Vietnam include: National Hospital of Pediatrics (NHP), Viet-Duc Hospital, Hong Ngoc General Hospital, and Thai Nguyen General Hospital.
